Sixty years of Women's World Handball excitement
The first IHF Women's Handball World Championship was held in 1957 in then Yugoslavia, which saw host neighbours Czechoslovakia emerge victorious over Hungary by the score of 7-1. That would prove to be the widest margin of victory for thirty years, an indication of how competitively this championship is contested. The field was expanded to twelve teams in 1973 at the games hosted once again by Yugoslavia, where this time, the home nation would triumph over Romania in an exciting 16-11 final. The 1986 IHF Women's Handball World Championship in The Netherlands saw a further expanded field of sixteen teams where spectators watched the team from the Soviet Union defeat Czechoslovakia 30-22, breaking the record from 1957. Twenty four teams participated in the German championship of 1997 for the first time and there the team from Denmark would claim its first world title. Other exciting world championships you can enjoy are FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup, Women's World Cup Football and Women's World Championship Hockey.

Thrilling moments of Women's World Handball Championship
Over the years, the IHF Women's Handball World Championship has produced some of the competition's most exciting finales. Hungary won a very close final in 1965 5-3 over Yugoslavia but it wasn't until 1993 that a gold medal match when into overtime. On that occasion in Norway, Germany and Denmark were tied 17 each at the end of regulation before the German team survived 22-21 at the end of extra time. Another nail-biter would follow in 1999, and this time host nation Norway would eke out a 25-24 marathon over the national team from France. Six years later, it was France's turn to win in overtime against Hungary at the games in Croatia 2003. Norway is the most successful team in the championship's history, although teams from Russia have claimed the most gold medals with four. It's the biennial meeting of the world's best handball teams, offering a history of sensational championship action, and you too can be there to catch every moment.
