The Most Athletic Play Of The Year So Far Is This Handball Save

So the 2018 European Men’s Handball Championship is currently going on in Croatia. Denmark took down Germany 26-25 the other day, but the final score could have gotten out of hand if it weren’t for this ridiculous display of athletic excellence late in the game by a German defender.

Gotta love a guy who is willing to give up his body in order to make a play for the boys. That takes heart. It takes dedication. It takes a major set of balls to sell out like that. I’m not sure how many of you have ever played handball before but it’s not like they’re playing on cushy turf. They’re also not playing on a bed full of rocks but that surface is still hard as fuck and buddy still launches himself 15-20 feet through the air to make a play.

We had conference championship weekend in the NFL. We’ve had NHL and NBA action in full swing. But Germany’s Rune Dahmke gets the play of the week award and there’s not even a close 2nd. Only a few days left in the tournament. Semifinals are on Friday and then the final is on Sunday. Handball Fever, baby. Catch it while it’s hot.
