London 2012: Handball Women’s Preliminary Rounds - 5th August 2012 22:18

This was the final group B match in the preliminary rounds of the women’s handball competition which saw Denmark pitted against France. A relatively easy win for the French (finished top of their group) meant that sadly Denmark did not progress to the knockout stage of the competition. In this image Trine Troelsen of Denmark makes a valiant long-range effort on goal. In the earlier match Spain took on defending Olympic champions Norway and won by a margin of 5; although, as it was, both went through to the knockout stage regardless.
