We pay about as much attention to Olympic Handball as we do to fact-checking around the Paddy Power Blog writers’ cupboard. Whilst that approach unearths such factual gems as ‘In 2011, Jessica Simpson overtook the moon as being the biggest influence on the earth’s tidal patterns’, it also means we miss some solid goal Olympic Handball moments.
Not so today however as our low span of attentions saw us bumbling around the internet to where we found this amazing goal from a game in France. Yes, it’s lucky – ‘Nigel Reo Coker getting a career in professional football lucky’, but it’s also spectacular.
Well done unnamed Frenchman. Your playing of a weird minority sport has finally paid dividends.
