Sorteio de Chaves Mundial de Oman 2012

É hoje às 12h30min do Brasil o sorteio do V Mundial de Beach Handball Masculino e Feminino. Será transmitido por internet

Estou curioso para ver como se comportará os membros do país sede na escolha de sua chave. Por serem promotores, têm direito a escolher a chave em que desejam jogar na primeira fase. Ao longo dos anos tenho acompanhado com bastante interesse essa escolha, pois denota, por parte de quem escolhe, a chave que considera mais fácil para avançar. Aguardemos!
