Olympics Discrimination Drama

This is one of those "problems" where I don't think I'm going to like the solution:
Beijing Olympic organisers are discriminating by hiring only young, tall, slim and attractive women to present medals at the 2008 Games, a human rights group has charged....
First, are there really people out there who are "professionally qualified" to present medals at award ceremonies? Is that a good gig, and where can I sign up? I'm tall.
Second, doesn't Human Rights Watch have better priorities in China than protecting ugly, fat professional medal presenters?
