Olympia 2021 / Handball: Argentina - Germany -: - (- :-), Monday, 4 a.m. (CET)

Munich / Tokyo - Since winning the European Championship in 2016, German handball players have been waiting for a victory at a major sporting event.

At the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, a medal should finally be found again.

But at the start of the Olympic handball tournament, the DHB team suffered a very narrow defeat against top nation Spain (27:28).

Nevertheless: Germany gave the reigning European champions a strong fight and knew how to convince.

And: Compared to the Handball World Cup in Egypt in 2021, where the DHB team only took twelfth place, the German squad is probably better staffed.

Defense chief Hendrik Pekeler and back shooter Steffen Weinhold (both THW Kiel) are among them this time.

As a reminder: at the 2016 summer games in Rio, Brazil, the German national handball team won the bronze medal.

Individual players of today's DHB team were among the medal winners at the time: Captain Uwe Gensheimer (Rhein-Neckar Löwen), goalkeepers Andreas Wolff (Vive Kielce) as well as Silvio Heinevetter and backcourt player Kai Häfner (both MT Melsungen).

And what's in it for the 2021 Olympics?

Also a medal *?

Olympia 2021 / handball: Argentina against Germany in the live ticker - pressure after bankruptcy against Spain

In 2013 DHB Vice Bob Hanning issued gold as a long-term goal.

And reaffirmed this goal in spite of the weak World Cup in the spring.

"We give our goal to ourselves. Nobody can say we have to get a medal," said national coach Alfred Gislason at the start of the 2021 Olympics *.

After the bankruptcy against the Spaniards, the first win in the group of six against Argentina in the second round game (Monday, 4 a.m., CET) should now be better.

Otherwise things get very tricky very quickly in Japan too.
