After 3 6 fits in Rosario, Argentina, the guys ’s and women’s beach handball champions of those 2019 South American Beach Games have been crowned — together using both gold medal matches moving to shootouts.
22 men’s and 14 women’s beach handball games featured over four match days in the ‘Red’ and ‘Green’ (Estadio Rojo, Estadio Verde) arenas on the north shore at La Florida, in the competition which started on Saturday 16 March and ended Tuesday 19 March before packed stands.
The Argentina women caused it to be just another gold within just half an hour because their senior team added the South American name for their Youth Olympic Games name won home sand in the capital city Buenos Aires in October.
Their team at Rosario saw a variety of kids encouraged from this Olympic-winning squad plus so they repeated it again, beating pre-tournament favourites — and neighbours — Brazil to select the title.
The success came following a tight shoot out triumph (7:6) which saw Argentina goalkeeper zo-e Turnes rescue the ultimate Brazilian opportunity to deny them a gold and grab it to get her team alternatively. Argentina had led going into the next group, but Brazil came back again to force the shoot out. Both finalists had taken a perfect record into their final match, with both won all their games without conceding a pair.
The bronze medal saw Paraguay — additionally with players from Buenos Aires 2018 in their positions — defeat Venezuela 2:0.
The end consequence of Argentina was historic for a variety of reasons as it had been their first gold South American Beach Games gold medal following silver in 2011 and 2014, and their first-ever triumph against Brazil, that included their first-ever set too as that they had never won one contrary to their neighbours in any official females ’s beach competition before.
But, directed by trainer Salvador Comparone and directed on the sand with pivot Gisella Bonomi, they prevailed at last. “The union of this collection identifies us as a team which gives us advantage,” said Argentina drama Ivana Eliges into the official Rosario 2019 website. &ldquoWe have pleasure and we all understand one another a lot on and off the sand — it is our temperament and helps us overcome every barrier that is presented to us, helping us to move forward and achieve our intentions.
In both men’therefore competition, Brazil continued their worldwide dominance, beating Uruguay 6:4 at the shoot out, even though following the first pair, with a 24:10 triumph under their belts, many watching thought it would not go all of the way.
But Uruguay, who hadn’t surrendered a set within their previous four matches, saw strength and won the next 16:10 — handing Brazil their original lost group after five games — but the present world champions found their strategy in the shoot out to shoot gold. From the bronze medal match, Venezuela be at Chile 2:0.
