For the Bronze EM Beach Handball match against Spain, the Norwegian players decided against the mandatory bikinis and instead wore shorts. This caused discontent with the European Handball Federation (EHF) Disciplinary Committee. According to “sportnews.bz”, she describes clothing selection as “a case of inappropriate clothing”.
Now I know the punishment. The Norwegian Federation was fined 1,500 euros. Ker Gere Liu, president of the Norwegian Handball Federation, had already told AFP before the referee announced that they would “pay any fine”.
Spontaneous or planned?
National player Katinka Haltvik, 30, spoke to public radio NRK about “spontaneous action”. However, in the run-up to the World Cup, the EHF was asked for permission to play in the shorts. However, the organization rejected the university and indicated a possible fine in case of violation of the rule. According to the regulations, the width of the bikini bottom may be “a maximum of ten centimeters”, while the width of men’s shorts must be “at least ten centimeters above the knee”.

The bikini requirement is not just a thorn in the side of Scandinavia. Many players find wearing a bikini impractical and offensive. The Hungarian European Union announced that it would seek to follow the interests of the regional associations. The rules will only be changed at the level of the International Handball Federation (IHF). So it remains to be seen whether such action actually leads to a rule change or whether he will be fined.
