The Norwegian women’s beach volleyball team claims that the tournament organizer forced players to play in bikinis instead of shorts. Players claimed that the bikini was too “obvious” and “sexually pleasing”. Not only this, players claim that the organizers threatened to impose fines. A Twitter user wrote in a viral post: “Norwegian beach volleyball girls wanted to play in these shorts instead of bikini bottoms. Their ass.” A volleyball player slides down a 50-foot waterfall in Hawaii and her GoPro camera captures a horrific accident (watch video)..
“This is what they have to wear. They say these bottoms feel unnecessarily sexual and uncomfortable with menstruation, etc. But as long as the CEV mandates. , They will play in them, “she wrote in another tweet.

Interestingly, following the new rules adopted by the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) in 2012, players are free to wear shorts and tops with sleeves. Earlier this year, at a Qatar tournament, female players were required to wear shirts and long trousers instead of regular bikinis. The FIVB said the rule “does not respect the culture and traditions of the host country.”
