Diomidis Argous wins Euro handball cup

 Greek champion lifts EHF Challenge Cup in Switzerland

By George Georgakopoulos

Greek handball earned on Monday its first European title as Diomidis Argous secured the Challenge Cup, the continent’s third-tier trophy.

The Greek champions, a new force in the domestic game, upset favorite Wacker Thun to become the unlikely winner of the two-leg final.

Diomidis had beaten its Swiss opponent 26-23 on May 20 at Loutraki, as its own court at Argos did not comply with European Handball Federation standards.

Monday’s return leg in Switzerland was a nail-biting affair, but the Greeks managed to defend their three-goal advantage as they lost 22-20, to the joy of the 100 or so traveling fans who enjoyed Greek handball’s most glorious moment ever.
