France Men’s Handball Team Preview

France has started to emerge as a major powerhouse in the world of men’s Handball since the 1990’s. They failed to qualify for the Olympics until the 1992 Olympics where they won a bronze medal. France has qualified for the Olympics ever since. 

France won a gold medal in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics and finished with a silver medal in the last Olympics in 2016.

France has also won the most number of Handball world cups since the 1995 World Handball Cup. In fact, France has won 6 of the last 12 IHF World Cups. They won 2011, 2015 and 2017 World Cups and finished 3rd in the 2019 World Cup and 4th in the 2021 World Cup.

France Handball Team Performance since 2018

France’s men’s Handball team has seen a slight dip in form since 2018. This was partly due to the fact that the end of their golden generation of players that reigned supreme between 2008 and 2017. This generation of players were called  “Les Experts” (the Experts). 

The Experts helped France win 2 out 3 Olympics,2 out of 5 European Championships and 4 out 5 Handball World Cups during their reign between 2008 and 2017.

The French team is now in a period of transition and trying to build another era of experts. Since 2018 France has played 2 European Championships and 2 World Cups.

France finished 3rd in the 2018 European Championship and crashed out in the group stages in the 2020 European Championships.

The French Handball team also witnessed a decline in the last two world cups as well with a third place finish in the 2019 world cup and a 4th place finish at the 2021 Handball world cup. 

For the 2021/22 European Handball season, France is ranked 2nd. They trail Germany by just 1 point and the third ranked team, Spain trails France by a massive 27 points.

The IHF hasn’t published world rankings since 2019 so it is difficult to ascertain which teams are the best.

France vs Germany Men’s Handball Prediction Olympics 2020

Based on the rankings,odds and past performance we can see why France are the favorites to win this game, odds of 1.57 set by bookmakers translates into a 63.7% chance for France to win and a 36.3% chance for Germany to win.

Germany has better ability to defend but France is better at scoring. Their defensive record is not too far apart either.

We predict that this game could go either way but we are siding with France. Keep in mind that Germany lost by just 1 goal to Spain, which is one of the best teams in the world and beat Argentina by +2 goal difference compared to France who also played Argentina.

When we looked at the results of 2 closely contested games we noticed a pattern. We found that these games tend to be decided by a margin of less than 5 goals (usually between 1 and 3 goals). The total number of goals also tend to be between 54 and 55 for an average of 54.5.

Here are some cool things to look forward to during the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics:

New Sports in 2020 Olympics

Many new sports will be introduced during the  2020 Tokyo Olympics. This is partly due the decision of the International Olympic Committee that allows the host to add new sports.

Some of the new sports that will be introduced in the Tokyo Olympics will be 3×3 Basketball, freestyle BMX, madison cycling, karate,sport climbing,surfing, skateboarding. We will also see the return of baseball and softball which were last played in the 2008 Olympics. This comes as no surprise as Baseball is Japan’s most popular sport.

Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020 Logo

There was some controversy surrounding the initial logo for the Tokyo Olympics with claims being made that the logo was plagiarized from the logo of the Théâtre de Liège in Belgium.

The design is meant to “express a refined elegance and sophistication that exemplifies Japan.

Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020 Mascot

The mascot for the Tokyo Olympics is called Miraitowa. The mascots were selected from a competition process which took place between late 2017 and early 2018. A total of 2042 were submitted and three were shortlisted.

Japanese elementary school students were invited to make the final pick and they picked Ryo Taniguchi’s design. Miraitowa is named after the Japanese words for future and his character and is described as very athletic who has a “strong sense of justice” and is described as “very athletic”. Mirowata has the ability to teleport anywhere instantly.

No international Spectators allowed for the Tokyo Olympics

Because of the pandemic and the fact that a lot of the Japanese population failed to receive vaccinations against the virus, the government along with the organizing committee decided to take strict measures in order to protect the Japanese people.

Overseas spectators were banned from entering Japan and their tickets were refunded.

Most events will be held behind closed doors

As mentioned earlier, most events during the Tokyo Olympics will be held behind closed doors. Only events that are taking place outside of Tokyo will be allowed at limited capacity, something which could be a major disappointment for many sports fans in Japan.

This decision was made on July 8 after a rise in Covid 19 cases in Tokyo.

“Green Medals” During the Tokyo Olympics

Japan is often touted as one of the most innovative countries in the world and they proved this during the Tokyo Olympics this year by making medals from recycled electronics.

Over 8 million tons of electronic waste was collected from businesses and citizens to produce all the medals for the Tokyo Olympics starting from February 2017.

Opening Ceremony of Tokyo Olympics 2021

The opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics will be taking place on July 23 2021 at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. Emperor Naruhito is expected to formally open the games. The event will take place behind closed doors with social distancing. Only about 1000 VIP guests will be physically present during the opening ceremony for this opening ceremony.

Many of the performances are pre recorded while the live performances will be undertaken with proper social distancing.

The parade of nations that is a tradition of the Olympic Games will take place as usual.
