Check out OSU Team Handball Club on Facebook for more details.
I tried giving team handball a chance but it's not a good watch (IMHO). It's just dry water polo (and, IMHO, water polo is not a fun spectator sport; skilled, athletic, and difficult, for sure, but not fun to watch).
As for football: aside from Brazil who was still smarting after the World Cup, I don't think that most soccer countries care about, what is essentially, a U-23 tournament. Now that Brazil has the Gold, they won't care anymore. The only people that would care would be the South Koreans-- because that would get them out of national service-- and, undoubtedly, the English because they haven't won anything since '66.
Obviously, the women would probably still care but I actually think the women's game would benefit from a game that is faster in pace.
