There's been a lot to cheer about at London 2012 so far.

Golds for team GB on track, field, velodrome, sea, court… hell, wherever you look, we're basically getting a medal these days.

But of all the things to cheer, the national press seems to have forgotten one very important one: the actual cheer-leaders.

 

If anyone's been to the beach volleyball, or basketball, or any sport involving cheerleaders, they'll know that like chocolate sauce on icecream, cheerleaders not wearing a lot of clothes is a great way to make something already great even better.

Which is why we at FHM are launching a campaign to make cheerleading mandatory in every British sport. If we get enough 'likes' and comments, below, we're going to take it to Parliament.

So, like these girls, show some support for a nation of cheerleaders, and who knows, you could see girls in hotpants every Saturday at 3pm next season…
