Balonmano en los Olímpicos de Tokio
July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Los Juegos Olímpicos de Verano 2020, los Juegos de la XXXII Olimpiada, se realizan en Tokio, Japón. En la competencia de balonmano, hombres y mujeres compiten en sus propios torneos de 12 equipos. Tras una fase de grupos, las ocho mejores selecciones avanzan a la fase eliminatoria de la competencia.
Handball is a fast-paced game involving two teams of seven players who pass, throw, catch and dribble a small ball with their hands while trying to score goals. The team with the most goals wins the game. A game consists of two 30-minute halves with a 10-minute half-time break.
Players can only hold the ball for up to three seconds before passing, dribbling or shooting, and they may take a maximum of three steps while holding it.
Only the defending goalkeeper is allowed inside the goal line (within 6 meters of the goal). However, players may jump into this area when attempting a shot but must release the ball before landing.
