The Norwegian women’s beach volleyball team is refusing to wear bikini bottoms at a recent match, which could result in them facing a fine for not wearing the approved uniform.

Norwegian Handball Federation president Kare Geir Lio told the AFP that the Federation would pay any fine that the players faced, which reportedly could be up to 50 euros per player.

“Of course we would pay any fine,” Lio said. “We are all in the same boat. “The most important thing is to have equipment that athletes are comfortable with.”
