Just cancel it already: Norway beach Handbal team fined 150 euros 4 wearing shorts instead of bikini

Norway’s women’s beach handball team has been fined for refusing to play in bikini bottoms during a game in the sport’s Euro 2021 tournament. “The players tell me they are uncomfortable, feel naked and watched,” another women’s team manager said. The women's handball tournament at the Summer Olympics will be the twelfth edition.

fucking creepy ass rule.
It's so fucked up and horrible to have this kind of rule. I'm glad the team did something about it and I hope something will change.

I actually used to play beach handball and we obviously wore regular jerseys.

Beach handball is such a little known sport and now it'll probably be linked with sexism in a lot of people's minds. Maybe this will make the federation change its mind since common decency can't be expected from sexist pigs.
shit like this just really makes me want to #destroyallmen
WTFFFFF can't believe they were fined. Those bikini bottoms (and the ones generally worn by other athletes like volleyball players) look ridiculously uncomfortable and that bottom pic comparing uniforms with the men is blowing my mind. Hoping enough of a ruckus is made to change this shitty and sexist policy.

(unrelated but i first read the post title as "Hannibal Team" and was like whaaaaa?)
What a fucked up rule.
Instead of saying they want to dress like the men do, would a more effective strategy be to have the men dress like them aka just have them play in speedos? I am sure they men will quickly raise a stink and then problem solved, point proven.

I went to Norway and the whole time I was thinking how much more progressive it was vs where I'm originally from. This is disappointing af.
in defense of Norway, it's the International Handball Federation being dildos in this circumstance.
good to know! if I could afford to live there, I would move in a heart beat. Its awesome..the only bad thing I can think of to say is they charge a lot for sodas lol
I went there to visit a friend and LOVED it. SO gorgeous, the people were very nice. I felt safe as a woman walking around a major city alone. The food/ atmosphere, clean air, etc...

what was about Norway that was more progressive vs where you are from?
This is honestly infuriating.
good for them. i'm proud of them but really sorry all these teams have to go through this. there is literally no good athletic reason for the outfits. i watched some teams play in 2016 and the outfits made me so uncomfortable and anxious on their behalf i had to stop watching.
I cant see the practicality of wearing bikini bottoms, they must get sand all up in there
There is no reason whatsoever for them to be forced to wear bikinis. Let them be comfortable jfc!
So did they pay or what? I can't read the article, I need a NYT subscription.
That picture is truly sad. Wants me to run and cover them all up. And give them a hug. It's humiliating.
The uniforms forced on female athletes is pure evil by fucking asshole men.
women can't just fucking live huh?
