Stefan Fatsis is without a doubt the biggest mainstream sports reporter/proponent of Team Handball in the United States. A regular guest on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, if there’s a possibility to work in a tidbit of news about the sport Stefan finds a way.
With the Olympics coming up Stefan was curious as to the state of the sport in the USA and what do expect in terms of the upcoming Olympic competition. Our conversation covers these topics and more and lasts about 38 minutes.
