U.S. National Public Radio (NPR) has a short audio story on a women’s handball club in Ramadi, Iraq. According to the story, Iraq used to have one of the better programs in Asia.
Commentary: I was amused that the NPR piece neglected to explain the sport as team handball. Despite the best efforts of regular contributor to NPR, Stefan Fatsis, I would guess that the vast majority of the NPR audience listened to the story with a vision of the 4 walled game.
