Domagoj Duvnjak Named "World Handball Player of the Year"






It never hurts to be named the best in the world in anything these days, so I'm throwing this one here. Handball isn't all that well known or popular on this side of the pond, practically non-existent actually. (other than in high school or grade school or maybe college teams that is). However, handball is very popular in Croatia, and all over Europe actually, also in Australia and New Zealand. Each country has their own professional handball leagues, and of course there's always the Summer Olympics too.

I usually watch the European and World Handball Championships when it comes around, it's fast paced, more physical than you may think at times and basically an exciting sport for fans to watch, (there are women's leagues also) I like the jerseys too, there are some very cool looking jerseys in Handball. Anyway, some related vids at the bottom......
