History of Team Handball (Source - US Team Handball Team Handball originated in Europe in the1900s. There are over 140 countries recognized as members of the International handball Federation (IHF). Handball made its Olympic debut in the 1936 Berlin Games as an outdoor sport, with 11 players on a side. Since then, the game not played at the Olympic games until 1972, where it was played indoors with 7 players on each side. In the 1976 Olympic Games, women's handball was added.

Object of the Game
Handball combines the elements of soccer and basketball, as six players move the ball down a floor that is larger than a basketball court and try to score by throwing the ball past a goalkeeper into the net. A successful scoring attempt results in the award of a single point. Typical final scores in this action-packed game run in the mid twenties. MORE

Handball is considered one of the oldest games in the history of sport. A few references in Homer's Odyssey provide evidence of a game similar to Handball, played on the island of the Faiakes (Corfu). Further evidence of a primitive version of Handball is also found on a marble plaque found at the Athens Acropolis, dating to about 600 B.C. In Roman years, the game then called "arpaston", spread to the people of Germany and France.
At the end of the 19th century, the modern form of Handball appeared in Denmark, Germany and Czechoslovakia, as a training exercise for gymnasts, and as a fitness tool for football players during their off season. Around 1910, the Swedes adopted regulations for handball that were similar to those of football.
In 1936, Handball made its debut to the public as an exhibition sport at the Olympic Games. It was held in an open stadium, with two teams of 11 players on each team. Handball was officially incorporated into Olympic Games in 1972. It was held in an indoor court measuring 20x40m with teams of seven players.
The Sport
Each team consists of seven players on the field and seven substitutes on the bench. An unlimited number of substitutions are allowed during the game. Two referees monitor the game. It takes place in an indoor sports hall on a court measuring 40 x 20 m. Goal posts, measuring 2 m high and 3 m wide, are placed at the centre of each end line. The players' objective is, by only using their hands, to put the ball into the goal of the opposing team. The team with the most goals wins.

But there are also sports where Greece has never been represented at the Olympics. VOLLEYBALL
    The President of Greece's Volley Ball Federation (EOPE) and Hellenic Olympic Committee's (HOC) treasurer Thanassis Beligratis was very clear about the participation of national volleyball teams of men and women in the Athens Olympic Games. "We won't participate in the Games just to parade", he said. "The program of our national
    volleyball teams' preparation for the 2004 was set up when our country won the Olympic Games organization. We have been working on that and I hope that our teams will manage to star both in the volleyball and in the beach volleyball". Greece's national men's team won a bronze medal at a European championship, while they took the sixth place, the best they had ever achieved, at the World Championship which took place in Athens in 1994. In the beach volleyball, Greece can be proud of a gold medal at a European championship. It is worth mentioning that volleyball was introduced to the Olympic Games in 1964 in Tokyo, while beach volleyball was introduced to the Olympic Games program in 1996 in Atlanta. Greece has already a participation in two Games.

    Although Dr. James Naismith is recognized for inventing the game of basketball in December 1891, it wasn't until June 18, 1932, in Geneva, Switzerland that an international federation concerned with just basketball was formed. Then, less than three years later on February 28, 1935, the International Basketball Federation (FIBB) was officially recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) helping clear the way for men's basketball to become part of the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympic Games. Actually, the first international body to claim jurisdiction over the sport of basketball was the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF), which in 1926 formed a special commission to govern all ball games played with the hands, such as field-handball, court-handball, volleyball and basketball. Two years later during the Games of the IXth Olympiad held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the IAAF invited representatives from various national associations to consider the forming of an independent body to govern all ball games played with hands. Representatives from 10 countries met in Amsterdam on August 4, 1928 and decided to form the International Amateur Handball Federation (IAHF).

    Farewell to Athens
    Every Olympic Games provides us with defining moments. Some are obvious - like Cathy Freeman's golden run in Sydney and Muhammad Ali's lighting of the cauldron in Atlanta. Others are a matter of personal preference. Athens was no different. In almost every sport there were memories to cherish. From the feats of Ian Thorpe Michael Phelps and Jodie Henry in the pool to unforgettable victories by Kelly Holmes and Hicham El Guerrouj on the track, every winner had a story to tell. And so did most of the losers. Losers like Jana Pittman , Wilson Kipketer and Alex Popov, who weren't losers at all, but were winners without gold medals. For the Greeks, these Games were a triumph. Not because they were the best ever, but because in the main, they went without a hitch. Because, despite the doubters, they opened on schedule, and because - perhaps against all odds in today's world - for a little more than two weeks they recaptured the spirit of the ancient Olympics. The centrepiece of these Games was the thoroughly modern stadium with its Santiago Calatrava-designed roof.

    The Game
    Team Handball combines the skills of running, jumping, catching, and throwing into a fast-moving, exciting game. Elements of soccer, basketball, hockey and water polo all can be seen in team handball. The basic objective of the game is to out maneuver the opponent by passing the ball quickly and then throw the ball past the defense and goalie to score.
    Team handball has existed in the United States since 1959, but only in the last few years has it been recognized as something entirely different from the YMCA variety of 4 wall handball. The inclusion of team handball in the Olympics in 1972, and for women in 1976 in Montreal has given the sport more exposure. The sport originated in Europe in the late 1920's and is now second only to soccer in popularity. Team Handball is being played in 72 nations on 6 continents with more than 3 million players affiliated with the International Handball Federation (IHF).

    History Of Volleyball http://www.Volleyball.ORG
      In 1995, the sport of Volleyball was 100 years old! The sport originated in the United States, and is now just achieving the type of popularity in the U.S. that it has received on a global basis, where it ranks behind only soccer among participation sports. Today there are more than 46 million Americans who play volleyball. There are 800 million players worldwide who play Volleyball at least once a week. In William G. Morgan, an instructor at the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in Holyoke, Mass., decided to blend elements of basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball to create a game for his classes of businessmen which would demand less physical contact than basketball. He created the game of Volleyball (at that time called mintonette). Morgan borrowed the net from tennis, and raised it 6 feet 6 inches above the floor, just above the average man's head. During a demonstration game, someone remarked to Morgan that the players seemed to be volleying the ball back and forth over the net, and perhaps "volleyball" would be a more descriptive name for the sport.

Underdog Denmark won the 1996 women's event over South Korea, the 1988 and 1992 champions, in overtime. Australia received an automatic bid as the host nation. The finer points
    The court: Basic rules: Matches are played in two halves of 30 minutes each. Each team can have seven players on court, including the goalkeeper, with substitutions made on a rolling basis. Only the goalkeeper can touch the ball with his body in the act of defense within the goal area. Players can hold the ball only up to three seconds each and may take up to three steps when in possession. They are not allowed to kick the ball. Players are not allowed to obstruct or push an opponent or hit a ball out of an opponent's hands. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Baseball Often referred to as America's national pastime, baseball made its debut as an official Olympic sport on July 26, 1992, in Barcelona, Spain. Before 1992, baseball had often been seen in various exhibition and demonstration games throughout modern Olympic history. In time, baseball became so popular that it was scheduled to become an official sport at the 1940 Olympic Games in Japan. However, due to World War II, the Games were canceled and baseball was overlooked as an official Olympic sport for the next 52 years. The Olympic Committee formally decided baseball would be an official sport in 1992. Click a link to
