    After watching it on tv its nothing like I expected. I thought it was more like raquetball. Way more fun to watch!

    As a lefty I'm pretty sure I could dominate from the corner position.

    That is individual handball. Team handball is a totally different sport. It would be cool if it got popular in the US.

    A new a girl that was on the US Team for a while. I guess she learned it at Westpoint. They must really pump the obscure Olympic sports there. That being said, I would LOVE to play this sport!

    It is obscure for US but not that obscure (like badminton or field hockey) for the rest of the world. Pretty popular in Europe.

    ISU alum and Iowa raised athlete, Lisa Eagen, was the team captain of the US women's handball team for 4 years.

    I know this might get me some "cool story bro" responses but since she was an ISU athlete, I thought it was worth mentioning.
