Lord Coe Backs Handball to be An Olympic Hit!

LONDON Olympics Chairman Lord Coe has backed handball to be a big hit at the 2012 Games.

He was responding to questions about Olympic tickets which go on sale in March, and backed all sports - including handball - to sell out and give the British public a real sporting boost.

“There is massive interest in sport generally in this country and people will also want to go to see sports they have never seen before to sample the Olympic experience,” he said.

“This is also an opportunity for a number of federations to use that showcase as a way of attracting young people to the qualities of that sport.

“Handball for example could have a very big leg-up in this country as it is a very good sport and exciting for kids to learn and play.”
