Sweden suffers another handball defeat

At the London Olympics the Swedish women's handball team lost 24-21 to Norway on Monday evening. Defeats in their first two games have slimmed the team's chances of advancing to the playoffs.

"It was a fight against their goalkeeper, who was fantastic today," the Swedish coach Per Johansson told Swedish Radio Sport after the game.

Sweden has three games to go in the group. Next up is France on Wednesday. The top four teams in each group advance to the playoffs.
