Into the finals!!!

We beat Spain, 36-30!!!

We’ll compete for the gold in men’s handball – and will DEFINITELY take the silver.


[as soon as the game finished you could hear screaming from just about every building …. it was GREAT!! RÚV had an interview with our Minister of Culture – who is also Minister of Sport – and she was weeping. The whole country is on its head!]

    This is the part where you’re supposed to say CONGRATULATIONS! or HUZZAH! or some sort of thing.

    Yup – CONGRATULATIONS – let’s hope you go all the way! (Not much work getting done here either, but then it is the Friday before the bank holiday…)
