As an Aussie sports-loving woman living in Norway, I am really disturbed to see the Norwegian women’s beach handball team fined for not playing in bikinis at the Euro 21 match with Spain.
Male players are allowed to play in tank tops and shorts. But the International Handball Federation (IHF) rules state women players have to wear bikini bottoms “with a close fit and cut on an upward angle toward the top of the leg”. IHF says the outfit is consistent with the ‘attractive image of the sport’.
You have to wonder who the outfit is really designed to please.
