The World Handball Championships are taking place in Citywest Hotel this week, with players coming from all over the world to take part. It is the first time to be held in Ireland since 2003 so the atmosphere is brilliant.
Bridgetown had three players in the 40 by 20 competitions. Stevie Lawlor won his first round match, only to lose out in the next round. Richard Martin suffered a narrow defeat in his first round match. Micheal Busher got through three rounds only to lose out in the fourth on a tie break to his Canadian opponent. He did very well to reach the last 32 in the world when you consider that over 190 players entered.
They all have another go in the 1 Wall competition before the Championships come to an end at the weekend. It has to date been a great experience for both player and spectator alike.
