Watch out ! These two words "leopard"and "leotard" which are so similar in their spellings are pronounced differently and their meanings are also different.Check them by clicking on the links below:
You can understand their meanings when you see them in context but it is necessary to practise their pronunciation not to mispronounce them when you are having a conversation about wild animals and about gymasts.
"Athletes keep changing their leotards."
You have probably read about the German Gymnasts' body-covering unitard (full-body suit) which called everybod's attention at the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games.They wanted to take a stand against "sexualisation in gymnastics".
"Under the rules of the International Gymnastics Federation(FIG)competitors are allowed to wear one piece leotard with full-length legs-hip to ankle provided it is of elegant design.".
What's you opinion about this change in female gymants' outfits ? Do you believe their performances can be damaged if they choose to wear full-body suits ?
