Today Iceland beat Spain in the Olympic handball tournament and qualified for the final. It's big. Iceland has never won an Olympic gold. If you count all summer and winter games ever we've won 2 bronze medals. The last and only silver was more than 50 years ago. We have 0,3 million inhabitants and Spain has 46 million.
In Sweden they think the 4 silver medals and 1 bronze medal so far in this year's Olympics is a disaster. Maybe they will celebrate now since it was Iceland that prevented them from qualifying for the Olympic handball tournament. In Iceland the minister of education and sports cried on TV after the game.
