America's Olympic hopefuls in the 2012 beach volleyball competition have revealed that they turn to laser hair removal in order to make sure they always look their best on the court. Speaking to fashion website, Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor admitted that they hate having to wax in order to keep their bikini lines in shape.Kerri said: "I hate getting waxed. Waxing makes me want to punch someone in the face. But I don't want to be self-conscious and worry about my bikini line when I'm playing, so [I use] lasers." According to a report by the Daily Mail, Kerri also told Allure that the bikini tops she wears are usually padded and that she has considered having a breast augmentation procedure. And it is not just American athletes who have turned to laser hair surgery ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Team GB athletes Zara Dampney and her beach volleyball partner Shauna Mullin have undergone laser treatments in order to keep unwanted hair at bay. Blogging on The Harley Medical's website earlier this week, Zara said: "Being hair free is really important to me as I constantly play in regulation bikini bottoms and a sports bra. "With so many eyes on us when we are playing, we are definitely no strangers to wanting to look and feel our best."
