Georgia Wins First Emerging Nations Trophy in Handball

The Georgian national handball team finished the International Handball Federation (IHF) Emerging Nations Championship with its first Emerging Nations Trophy, beating Cuba with a win of 31:21 on Sunday night in Tbilisi Sports Palace.

It is Georgia’s first Emerging Nations title after the Faroe Islands won in 2015 and 2017.

“After a level first quarter Georgia began to create an advantage, and they controlled the second half completely to record a 10-goal victory at the final whistle… 18 saves from goalkeeper Shota Tevzadze and a fast-paced attacking game were the keys to Georgia’s victory in the final”, reports the IHF.
