Meet Naomi Yotsumoto, a Japanese table tennis player. See photos, video and a biography of Naomi below.
Hat tip to our friends at With Leather, who alerted us about table tennis hottie Naomi Yotsumoto. Evidently the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) is trying to sex up the sport since there wasn’t much interest in table tennis at the Olympic Games (judging from the lack of fans in the stands). Yotsumoto, who hails from Japan, is already ahead of the game. At last year’s Japanese National Championships, she wore a pleated mini-skirt, knee socks, and a top with a revealing shoulder. Say it isn’t so! Heh.
As a biography, not much is known about Naomi Yotsumoto other than the fact that she is a Japanese professional table tennis player.
She started wearing the bizarre uniforms upon graduation from college. She said:
“I wanted to show myself. So with that, I wanted to change the image of ‘Table tennis is stupid.’ ”
The uniform that she wore at the Japanese National Championships (photo above and below) was designed by Naomi herself and she says she will continue designing her own uniforms…No matter how loud they are.
