Toned athletes in revealing bikinis look very sexy. But they don't wear separate swimsuits for beauty. The European Handball Federation once even fined a women's team from Norway for performing in shorts. The rules of the organization clearly state that athletes are required to perform in shorts. Find out what such prescriptions are related to from our material.
Recently, the European Handball Federation fined the Norwegian women's team for playing in shorts. The International Handball Federation has obliged women to play in bikinis, and men - in shorts 10 cm above the knee. Now the organization is reviewing the rules, since complaints have been received from the Norwegian women's team for 15 years in connection with the requirement to play in underpants.
Norwegian women are not so much against underpants in sports, as against the forced wearing of them. In fact, many athletes, especially in beach sports (handball, volleyball), prefer to cover their bodies at a minimum, since they often play on the sand in hot weather.
Olympic volleyball champion Jennifer Cassie says that it is inconvenient for her to play in a one-piece swimsuit. The combo limited and constrained the movements, so the athlete began to perform in a bikini.
Track and field athletes are not required to perform in shorts, but many of them wear bikinis because they are used to such a form. The more clothes an athlete wears, the less it distracts attention from her performance, but in certain conditions, revealing sets are much more convenient. However, each team should have the right to choose what to perform in the competition.
Despite all the arguments, the sports game becomes much more interesting when its participants compete in bikinis. Hot photos of women's beach volleyball at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro confirm this.
