The Norwegian women’s beach handball team has been fined after players opted to wear shorts instead of bikini bottoms during a European championship game. The European Handball Federation said Monday that it had imposed a fine of $1,766 — $176 for each player — on the team for “improper clothing” in the bronze medal game against Spain on Sunday. Female athletes must wear bikini bottoms with a side width a maximum of 3.9 inches, with a “close fit” and “cut on an upward angle toward the top of the leg,” according to International Handball Federation regulations. Meanwhile, men must wear shorts that are “not too baggy” and 10 centimeters above the kneecap. Tap the link in our bio to learn more.⁠

  1. Really wish the men’s team would wear bikini’s to protest the hypocrisy of this insane policy.

  2. What’s the reasoning behind them only being able to wear skimpy bikini bottoms? Is there a legit reason or it is more policing what women wear? Cuz it sounds like some old white man shit at play with those rules! Men can wear shorts, why can’t women? And if women HAVE to wear bikinis, men should have to, too. 🙄

  3. The team agreed to pay the fine and said they’ll pay the fine for the future games they play!

  4. We should crowd find that fine – how dare they impose a fine for wearing shorts 😡 this is not okay !

  5. Absolute bullshit. It’s 2021 and sport federations are acting like this? A bunch of men behind their desks deciding what women in sports can wear and not. Time to step it up world…
