The sport is pretty cool to watch but gets zero coverage in the US outside the Olympics and even there it’s treated as some “wacky” event like curling in the winter games :ROFLMAO:

It’s always described here as a mashup of basketball, hockey and soccer/football

Yeah France are alway considered one of the favourites but they had a shock loss to Portugal. Then they lost to Norway in Norway which is understandable. Not sure if they're going through a transition stage but whatever. Croata brought a young team with them so I don't know if we're contending for a medal.

However usually the contenders would include France, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Croatia and Spain. Germany has also been doing well recently.

Norway not really, but they did pour some significant amount of money into balonmano recently.

Hungary's system collapses the same way it collapses in football: not good enough coaches aka szakmabeliek. Szövi and the others will agree.

Norway's reached the last two WC finals so they're more than decent...Sweden is among the faves here but they're weakened due to injury and recent retirements...France is out, Denmark is hanging by a thread...only Spain on the other side of the draw looks primed...realistically, Norway is probably top chance atm..
