    Well, you did watch two of the worst women's teams in the event.

    Handball has more players in more active countries. Germany are top of the world in both sports (on the men's side), yet handball is considerably more popular both among players and spectators. Suggests to me that the level in handball is higher. (Whether you prefer someone tossing a ball or someone flicking a stick is really a matter of personal opinion though.)

    No doubt an intriguing game. Beats me how they know players aren't breathing through their nose though.

    Well, its tough to breathe through your nose whilst saying "Kabbadikabbadikabbadikabbadi" etc.

    Tough game. The sort of game that gets banned by the anti-competitive brigade these days.

    Need the kiwis to pick up some more. Currently on 9, with India on 3 & Ireland 2 with another guaranteed in the light-heavyweight boxing.

    Not the worst shout still tho.

    Only one we could pick up now is in the K1 500 kayaking on Sunday. No other medal chances left.
