    The Norwegian women's beach handball team was fined on Monday after wearing shorts at the European championships in protest of rules requiring women players to wear bikini bottoms.
    The European Handball Federation issued fines of 150 euros per player, for a total of 1,500 euros, saying that their shorts were "improper clothing," according to the regulations set by the International Handball Federation.
    The federation's rules state that while men are required to wear shorts, women can only wear bikini bottoms "with a close fit and cut on an upward angle toward the top of the leg." The bottoms must have a side width of no more than 10 centimeters, or about 3.9 inches, according to the regulations.
    Perverts.

    Just change the rule to all participants play nude, problem solved. Not to mention they could probably quadruple or more the ticket price.

    Seriously though, sexist and stupid rule. Beach volleyball players don't move any differently than hard court volleyball players and latter don't wear bikinis.

    That's why I was laughing. The only thing that would bring viewers (aka perverts to Benji) is the bikinis. What sport is this ? Dodgeball?

    They're basically taking sports or games and putting them on the beach and now it's a thing. When do we get beach curling and beach wrestling?

    And the beach is just a reason for the bikinis.
