NEWS REPORT: The Under 16 Beach Handball EURO was a huge success and the organisers have now released a Best of video giving all players and fans the chance to relive the championship's highlights
Relive the best beach handball scenes from Nazaré 2016
Less than two months ago, the Dutch under 16 women's teams and the Spanish under 16 men's team conquered the beach of Nazaré when they won the Under 16 Beach Handball EURO that took place in the Portuguese city from 8 to 10 July.
The Beach Handball EURO entered new ground with 32 teams hitting the beach. Never before had a youth beach handball championship attracted so many teams.
The Portuguese organisers of the championship have now created a Best of video that gives all players and fans the chance to relive the championship's highlights (the video can also be accessed via the EHF's activities website).
The Olympics at the horizon
Part of the reason for the number of participating team might very well be the fact that an Olympic participation is beckoning. The top four finishers from in the men's and the women's event qualified for the IHF U17 World Championship in 2017.
From there, the top three European nations at the World Championship will then qualify to play in the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Argentina as beach handball makes its debut in the competition programme.
