The Norwegian women’s beach handball team were fined for not wearing bikini bottoms – this got me thinking, do the men’s teams have to wear budgie-smugglers?

whatever floats your boat me old china!
Men are allowed to wear shorts.

Good to read that Pink has said she'll pay their fines.
Meanwhile the German women gymnasts are wearing body suits which curiously appear more revealing than the leotards
I don't know the answer but it's a stupid rule that will have disappeared by the next Olympics.
Yes, well done Pink.
There’s a disabled athlete who’s been banned from wearing bottoms that are actually too revealing :-)
Sorry, Hymie.

There's no point in you watching the men's game, it seems, because the men have to wear shorts.

However there's no limit on exactly how 'short' they actually are. They must be 'no longer than four inches above the knee' but, as I read the rules, this guy is eligible to compete: https://qph.fs.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-e91fb136fc2f7d6c07fb789c37757065.webp ;-)

Perhaps you should start watching rugby though. Guess what's an official licensed product of the British and Irish Lions?

it really does sound like a rule invented by 1970s men on Malibu or Copacabana, doesn't it?
The IOC had a meeting in Hooters Las Vagus and decided this will be in the next Olympics:
I watched some of the womens beach volleyball today and there was a nasty wrist injury, I should be ok in a few days! ;)
We've reached the basement I see.
You're no saint, Peter!
@Mamya not surprising though. Doesn't take much for some sad individuals.
As you say, no surprise.
Why don't you lighten up, there will come a time when one cannot comment on anything, tut tut tut, you've obviously had a sense of humour bypass.
Nothing surprises me anymore, its a sad state of affairs!
I echo the respect for Pink. Bit of a fan, actually - very proggy in places!
Agree Jim.
Nah just tired of women being seen as sex objects. If you find that funny then that's your choice but you have to live with that being criticised. The old "no sense of humour" thing is super dated as well. Shame you had to go down that route but again, unsurprising.
Btw my last reply was for Peter. Who will no doubt be thinking of typing that I "must be fun at parties" too.... *yawn*.

Agree that P!nk is flipping awesome. Just generally but also for this. :)
Good question. I have always wondered why the mens athletes wear shorts and the women get away with wearing bikini bottoms, they are not attractive.
