From 21 to 25 February, the men’s and women’s youth beach handball teams from Pan America fought in Paraguay for the title of first Youth Beach Handball Pan American Champions and a spot at the 1st Men’s and Women’s U17 Beach Handball Championships to be played in Mauritius in July 2017. In both competitions the gold medal match was played between Argentina and Brazil but while Brazil could celebrate the title in the men’s competition it were Argentina’s girls to claim first place in the women’s tournament.

 

After winning all of their preliminary round matches, the girls from Argentina beat Paraguay in the semi-finals after shoot-outs. Brazil, who beat Venezuela in their semi-final 2:0, thus joined Argentina in the final where they had to admit defeat, losing 2:0 against Albiceleste. In the match for third place, Venezuela beat Paraguay 2:0.

 

In the men’s competition Argentina, unbeaten until then, went into the final as favourites but Brazil put a spoke in their wheel defeating them in shoot-outs after two close periods. In the match for third place, Paraguay faced Venezuela and just as in the women’s competition, the hosts had to settle for fourth place, losing 2:0.

 

Therefore, in both categories, the teams from Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela and Paraguay qualified for the 1st Men’s and Women’s U17 Beach Handball World Championship, at which the teams to take part in the 2018 Youth Olympics will be determined.
