Competitive Fashion II

Here's a follow-up to my post on competitive fashion -- at the U.S. Championship, no less.
After the players greeted each other at the start, they tended to avoid eye contact. It was hard to say where the eyes of Dmitry Schneider, 18, were, however. His opponent, 27-year-old Kelly Cottrell, wore an eye-popping top that caused a small stir among players and tournament officials.

Was it a strategy to distract her opponent? There was no way to tell for sure, Tanner said, but some female players have used alluring attire as a means of distraction before.
Ben Finegold might want to take a break from his preparation to keep an eye on his wife between rounds. :)
