Only Stunners Need Apply

Those ladies hoping to become a hostess for next year's Beijing Olympics need only bother applying if they are slim, cute and tall.

That is the advice of Zhao Dongming, director of the cultural activities department for the Beijing Olympic organising committee. He went on to say that they must have stunning figures, and measure between 1.68 metres and 1.78 metres in height.

Zhao is tasked with finding 380 women aged between 18 and 25 to serve as hostesses at medal ceremonies at Olympic venues, and another 180 for work at the opening ceremony and flag-raising events.

He said:

"We want them to be young and beautiful, and be well-rounded individuals as well."

I can't see Lord Coe getting away with that if he tried it in the London Games.
