Denmark and Sweden are playing right now, Denmark up 5-4 right now. This should be a good game.

Yeah, Norway and S. Korea are probably locks. This was a pretty good game thus far, Rikke Skov is great.

France is much better than those two aswell. They're 3rd favorite to win the tournament.

Swedish offense being abysmal like always cost the game. Need a miracle now.

I forgot about France, but you never know, everything's possible in women's handball.

Tough loss for Sweden.

Montenegro and Great Britain playing right now, this should be an easy win for Montenegro.

Montenegro wins 31-19, GB looked better than I tought they would.

France vs Norway is next and final game of the day. A clash of women's handball titans and a can't miss game for all who love handball.

It makes sense, two of the very best teams in the world (alongside S. Korea and Russia) going at it. It's going to be fun, hopefully Norway wins today.

France is off to a flying start, they lead 3-0.

Watching my first ever Handball match. Exciting so far.

Does this go by halfs, quarters or periods?

Come on Norway, slowly crawling back, only down 7-5 now.

Ah, the penalty shot seems hardly fair. How is a goalie supposed to save that?

Shame to see GB lose was bad but I'm sure they'll improve. They were never meant to get far anyway.

Halfs, 30mins each.

Trust me, scoring from 7m line isn't as easy as it seems.

That's handball, this isn't anything out of the ordinary. Mens games are a lot rougher.

I hope they improve in the future, just like USA and other countries where handball isn't popular.

I really wish they'd put this game on instead of this beach volleyball game. Latvia Vs. Poland. Wow.

Yeah, I desperately want to see it professionally. I played a lot of handball in gym class.

Terrible 1st half for Norway, I've never seen Lunde-Harraldsen (Norways goalie) play so poorly.

It's a great sport to play, physical (line players get beat up like crazy every game), fast paced and you need to be athletic to play it. It's also a lot harder to play that it looks.
