STORY SCRIPT:

Argentina’s women’s beach handball team claimed Youth Olympic Games gold – beating Croatia – and  sparking scenes of wild celebration in Parque Sarmiento.

The hosts won the first period 14-10. In the second period Argentina built up an 18-12 lead with three minutes remaining. Croatia staged a late fight back, closing to 18-16 with 15 seconds left on the clock.

But they were unable to score again, and Argentina duly won the second period 18-16 to win the match 2-0 and secure the gold medal.

In the men’s final, Spain won the first period 19-14, thanks to some impressive ‘spin shots’ on goal, earning them double points. They went into the half-time break looking confident of victory. But the Portuguese fought back to force a tie by winning the second period 18-16.

That meant a penalty shoot-out to decide the winner. There was a succession of double point scoring shots on goal from both sides. But crucially, Portugal’s Miguel Neves missed his shot on goal.

Sergio Perez-Manzanares stepped up to fire home the winning score, a 9-6 shoot-out victory. His successful shot on goal brought joy to the Spanish players and coaches, despair to the Portuguese.
