Danish Handball Win

COPENHAGEN, Denmark () -- It may not have mass appeal or huge profits, but women's handball does have devoted fans, and some 5,000 braved a rainy Tuesday to cheer their native daughters for winning Europe's first women's handball title.

The 16-member team defeated world champion Germany on Sunday 27-23 in Berlin, taking revenge for their loss to the Germans in December in the women's handball world championships.
