Men's EHF EURO 2014
The 11th Men's EHF EURO was hosted for the first time by the nation which is regarded as one of the sport's cradles: Denmark.
The hosts entered the tournament as the red-hot gold medal favourites and convincingly made their way to the final without losing a match. However, it was France who dominated the tournament's last match from beginning to end to eventually beat Denmark 41:32 to take their third EHF EURO trophy following victories in 2006 and 2010.
In the match for third place, Spain beat Croatia 29:28.
The EHF EURO 2014 set a new attendance record, with 316,000 spectators flocking to the arenas in Herning, Aarhus, Aalborg and Brondby to follow the matches.
