Shandong beat Anhui 2-0 to win the men’s team title at the 2020 Sanya Beach Handball Invitational Tournament here last Friday. Anhui attacked fiercely at the beginning of the match, while Shandong used defensive counterattacking tactics, with the goalkeeper scoring directly when the Anhui players did not come to the defensive positions. The two teams played hard in the second half, Anhui was one point behind Shandong at the last second of the match, but Wang Wenjun did not score in the following free-kick for Anhui. “We won mainly in teamwork and defense, and we showed our usual training level today,” said Sun Haonan, a player for Shandong.
In the women’s event, Anhui beat the Chinese young women’s national team 2-0 to win the title. The Anhui women’s team, which has many national team players, with an average age of 22, won the match easily with their height and experience. Cheng Qiao, deputy secretary-general of the Chinese Handball Association, said that beach handball is entertaining for the audience due to the athletes’ fancy shooting skills such as the 360-degree twist in the air in pursuit of two points.
