Beach Handball Team – Sexism in Sport

Hey European Handball Federation, the 1800’s called and they would like their regulations back on women being forced to wear bikinis to play ……. outrageous sexism! Read the full story here: 

Norway’s beach handball team fined £1,300 for wearing shorts not bikini bottoms. The women were fined the equivalent of £130 (150 euros) each for the outfits they chose for their game. Global beach handball rules state that female players must wear bikinis and male players vest tops and shorts. The crazy uniform guidance reads: “Athletes’ uniforms and accessories contribute to helping athletes increase their performance as well as remain coherent with the sportive and attractive image of the sport. “Female athletes must wear bikini bottoms…with a close fit and cut on an upward angle toward the top of the leg.”

We are guessing the guidance was probably written by a man or a bunch of men?
