Men's handball team loses to France

Final defeat for Sweden as Olympics wrap up

The Swedish men's handball team lost to France by a frustratingly small margin in Sweden's last Olympic effort on Sunday.

The score read 21-22 for Sweden at the end of the men's handball finals at the London Olympics.

The Swedes were in the lead at the very start of the game, but were taken over by the French team who stayed ahead for the rest of the match.

This is the fourth time in this year's Olympics that Sweden made it to the finals, only to come second place.
