EHF EURO 2022 in numbers
How many debutants are at the tournament? How much medals did the best countries win so far? Can a host advance to the final? How many games will we witness in the next two and a half weeks?
The throw-off is approaching in Budapest, Debrecen, Szeged, Bratislava and Kosice as well, but before that we gathered some interesting numbers.
0 of the 24 participants are debutants.
1 EHF EURO top scorer only won the gold at the same tournament: Lars Christiansen (Denmark/2008).
2 hosts for an EHF EURO is a novelty: the 2020 edition had three (Norway, Sweden, and Austria) but between 1994 and 2018 the event always took place within one country.
3 countries have won the full set of medals (gold, silver, bronze): Germany, Denmark, and Spain.
4 titles is the record set by Sweden (1994, 1998, 2000, 2002), and Spain have 4 silver medals (1996, 1998, 2006, 2016)
5 hosts managed to reach the final, but only Sweden was able to win it all (2012).
6 nations have won gold in the previous 14 EHF EURO tournaments: Sweden (4), France (3), Spain, Denmark, Germany (2 each), and Russia.
7 different coaches have won gold: Bengt Johansson (SWE/4), Claude Onesta (FRA/3), Ulrik Wilbek (DEN/2), Jordi Ribera (ESP/2), Vladimir Maximov (RUS), Heiner Brand (GER), Dagur Sigurdsson (ISL/GER).
12 different nations have won medals: Sweden, France, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Russia, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Yugoslavia, Norway, and Iceland.
22 of the 24 EHF EURO 2022 participants also played at the 2020 edition; Lithuania and Slovakia are replacing Latvia and Switzerland.
