Pinsent Masons sponsored Olympic women's handball team takes on Olympic qualifier Montenegro

30 May 2012 | 02:27 pm |

The Pinsent Masons sponsored Great Britain’s women Olympic handball team takes on Olympic qualifier Montenegro today, at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre in an EHF Euro 2012 Group 3 Qualification match. The match is a prime opportunity for the women’s team to gain valuable competition prior to the Olympic Games, and a last chance before coach, Jesper Holmris, announces his final squad.

The match between Great Britain and Montenegro is the second-leg of the Group 3 EHF Euro 2012 qualifying tournament round-robin. Great Britain lost the first away leg 34-18. Montenegro, who recently qualified for London 2012 by winning the first qualification tournament in France, is currently in joint lead of Group 3 with Russia, tied on six points. 

GB Handball women’s team coach, Jesper Holmris commented: “This EHF Euro 2012 qualification match is a good competitive practice before the London Olympics. The girls have been training really hard over the past few months since the last time we faced Montenegro, and all our focus is on preparing to our best ability for the Olympic Games this summer.”

The match will take place immediately after the Olympic Handball Draw, where teams will be allocated into three groups for the round-robin tournament, which will take place in the newly developed handball stadium at the Olympic Park between 27 July – 12 August 2012.

The teams qualified for the London 2012 Olympic Games women’s handball competition are as follows: Great Britain, Norway, Brazil, Angola, Korea, Sweden, Montenegro, France, Spain, Croatia, Russia and Denmark.
