Last week, the European Handball Federation (EHF) fined the team a total of €1,500 (around $1,765), asserting that the women competed in"improper clothing" by wearing shorts like their male counterparts during the 2021 European Beach Handball Championships. On Sunday, Pink took to Twitter to lend her support to the team, saying the EHF should be fined"for sexism." Vi er kjempestolte over disse jentene som under EM hevet stemmen og ga beskjed om at NOK ER NOK! Vi i NHF står bak dere og støtter dere. Sammen skal vi fortsette å kjempe for å endre regelverket for bekledning, slik at spillerne får spille i det tøyet de er komfortable med! pic.twitter.com/MmfiMtVz2Q

So now you can’t wear what you want to compete Nice 1 Pink Very good.. I'm with them The question is what's the relationship between wearing bikinis and the sport itself? The team are willing to live the implications if at all it affects performance and it should be respected..

Damn.. Since when did sports become more about clothes and less about the game and fun What kind of idiots are incharge of these things?!? I‘m starting to doubt that the EHF board who made these rules are a bunch of lonely men who couldn’t get a pretty girl‘s attention in school, so they took into their own hands to make girls „strip“ for them by law.

Men are allowed to wear shorts because a speedo would impede their game. Women must wear bikinis because women are only there to be viewed. It’s obvious. sarcasm My hat’s off to you , Pink, Cheers 🥂. Money could have been used for better use though.

HotepJesus, can she get a grift? Refused How is wearing a bikini a RULE in the first bloody place? So they can't compete unless half their butt is hanging out? No problem with a general rule for attire but specifically REQUIRING competitors to wear a bikini clearly is a 'sex sells' move for those in charge of the sport

In this day and age do we really expect that kind of mindset from the Olympic organizations?,how ridiculous!,Good on you Pink for sticking up for these women. WAY TO GO PINK! The rule is RIDICULUS! Can you believe that someone in today's world would demand women wear bikini bottoms while the men can wear shorts? No sexism there, right? Disgusting.

Pink is amazing to support this team!!! I think all women should stand up and let Olympic officials know this rule is sexist Pay it forward I love it! That’s awful nice of Pink, but a lot of people like to see that booty! Wokebag! Besides the color pink sucks. Communist News Network

Pink Just Got Involved In The Norwegian Handball Team Shorts FlapThe team wore shorts instead of mandated bikini bottoms at a championship match.

If I was on the men's handball team I would wear a banana hammock just for spite The requirement for women to wear bikini bottoms is soooo sexist. Let's require men to wear speedos! And she made sure every news outlet knew about it! Well done, well done. 👎👎 It's a man's world, play with the rule, not against them

Shame on IOC. I don't see the men's teams forced to wear speedos Last week, the European Handball Federation (EHF) fined the team a total of €1,500 (around $1,765), asserting that the women competed in 'improper clothing' by wearing shorts like their male counterparts during the 2021 European Beach Handball Championships.

Shut up and play and put on the bikini

Dr. Anthony Fauci Tells CNN Funding China’s Wuhan Lab Research Was NecessaryDr. Anthony Fauci, under attack for his role in funding research at a laboratory many suspect of being the cause of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, defended his actions Sunday on CNN’s St… War Criminal! So after a year of denying the funding he now says it was necessary ? Lol. :)

Fine! Now can you pay their fine when norwegian women enter temples wearing bikini Yes Okay. 🙄 I hope other beach volleyball teams do it. I watched a game and it’s abhorrent. Why can’t they wear what regular female indoor volleyball players wear. Minus the long socks probably Sports is sports. Let people wear what they need to wear to perform to their top abilities. Have a minimum standard and have a color standard. That's it!

Well done ladies! 👍🏽👍🏽. It’s ridiculous that they were fined! 😡 Are she not the one running half naked around on the stage ? This whole thing makes me so mad. The idea that these young female athletes are being reduced to sex objects against their will or face repercussions is something I cannot believe is even happening. It's an outrage.
