Olympics – 1984 Los Angeles – Womens Team Handball – USA VS FGR


In these video highlights of the women’s handball Group B competition of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics…..the team from the USA takes on the eventual Group B winner and ultimate silver medal winning team from the Federal German Republic (West Germany) in Group competition.  Handball is an old sport that has been played mostly in European and Baltic countries….where the weather is so severe…..they had to go to the gymnasium to play sports…..and team handball became a very popular sport in such places as these…..so, long story short…..the USA teams have never been very good at the indoor sports….except basketball.

However, this match with the Germans by the US team…..was very competitive….and quite entertaining.
