The European Handball Federation insists that women should wear bikini bottoms to play... handball. Yes, that’s right: a game where the most important things are... hands.
Norwegian women players got fined 1500 Euros, because apparently shorts are ‘improper’ and bikini bottoms are necessary, even though neither garment has any effect on your playing. Male handball players wear shorts, and guess what: they can still play handball!
In my view, shorts are preferable to bikini bottoms in every way when playing sport. Even if you don’t agree, fining women for not showing more skin sends a nasty message.
Which knuckleheads make up these rules?
