The two preliminary groups of the men’s Olympic handball tournament were won by Croatia and Germany, who collected as many points as France and Slovenia respectively. Both semi-finals were very close games. Germany, the reigning European champion, lost against world champion France by 28-29. In the other semi-final Denmark succeeded with the same result against Poland after overtime. Surprisingly Denmark won the Olympic gold medal against the clear tournament favorite France in a tight game 28-26. Germany won the bronze medal match against Poland and thus captured the fifth Olympic medal since 1936 for a German team.
