It appears in ancient Greek amphorae but its birth is estimated to be even older. The most significant finding, which confirms the existence of Handball in the ancientry is a 3rd B.C. century small bronze statute, discovered in Dodoni, which simulates a boy with a sphere in his hands. Moreover, in the Egyptian Osiris’s tombs, there are paintings aged from 2000 B.C. where priests appear to hit the ball with their hands. Even in Homer’s epic Odyssey there is a reference about a game that was based on the ball exchange.
Handball’s worldwide paternity is “the apple of discord” between Czechia with “Hazena”, Denmark with “Haandbold” and Germany with “Torball”. The first official men’s match took place between students, in Sakova’s Sports Academy during 1907.The same year the first women team was gathered by Kristov and the first match took place in 1908.
Although handball was familiar to the Europeans with a variety of field dimensions, its first appearance in front of massive crowd was in the Olympic games of 1936 in Berlin. By then, it was played in a regular football field, with eleven players. After then, it reappeared in the Olympic Games of Munich in 1972 as part of the regular program, but this time was played with 7 players and in indoor halls with dimensions 40m X 20m and goals 3m X 2m (h).

Flame going out: Ward, marathon top final day in Athens August 28, 2004
ATHENS, Greece - Two of the most-anticipated moments from the closing ceremonies of recent Summer Olympics will be missing this time. In both cases, it's probably for the better. The first change is that the men's marathon won't end in the main Olympic stadium as a precursor to all the singing and dancing. Instead, in a final nod to the historical setting of these games, the race will start in the village of Marathon and end in Panathinaiko Stadium, the site of the first modern Olympics in 1896. The second switch will come closer to the end of the festivities, when IOC President Jacques Rogge makes his remarks.

U.S. Finds Lack of Drug Positives Encouraging
By Amy Shipley Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, August 30, 2004; Page D09 ATHENS, Aug. 29 Though a record number of athletes 22 were sent home from these Olympic Games because of drug violations, not a single American was among them. On the heels of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) drug scandal, the lack of American positives for performance-enhancing drugs is viewed as a victory almost on par with the 103 medals the U.S. team won here. U.S. sprinter Justin Gatlin, who earned gold, silver and bronze medals, said American track and field athletes, hounded by questions about the BALCO scandal during the July Olympic trials, came to Athens hoping to create different headlines.

By BOB HARIG, Times Staff Writer Published August 8, 2004 ABOUT THE SPORT: This is not your father's handball, the kind played one-on-one against a wall. This is a seven-on-seven game that is a combination of basketball, water polo and ice hockey and is contested on a field similar to indoor soccer. It requires skills such as running, throwing and jumping. Like basketball, players dribble, shoot and pass the ball with their hands and play on a small hardwood court. The ball is similar to a small soccer ball, and players score by throwing it past a goalie. WORLD'S BEST: On the men's side, there is no clear-cut favorite. Croatia won the last World Championship. Germany finished second, then won the European Championship. France, Spain and Russia also are considered contenders. For the women, Denmark enters as the two-time defending Olympic champion, although the team had a poor showing at the 2003 World Championship.
