You all know that there are certain rules that you should follow if you are a professional athlete. And when it comes to uniforms you have many kinds of uniforms that are said to wear and even though you are not fine with it you should wear them just because it is a rule. The Women’s Handball Team of Norway had anyhow decided not to wear their said uniform. As they had found the dress not comfortable they had worn shorts than wearing bikini bottoms. And for that, they had to face a fine of $1,766 as they have broken the uniform rules.
