Brothers’ handball story – 11 from 24 teams with the “same blood” in Qatar

Sounds unbeliavable that 11 from 24 national teams at 24th Men’s World Handball Championship in Qatar have the “some blood” in the roster. Brothers are one of the most popular topics in handball community in the last few days. Of course, Pablo, Diego and Sebastian Simonet (Argentina) became a hit of the start after thrilling match against Denmark, but also many of them are playing really good and making a lot of joy to their fans.

An example of how life’s paths can be unpredictable is linked with the names of Igor (Croatia) and Ivan (BIH) Karacic. Born in Mostar (BIH) under the same roof, brothers will face each other in preliminary round Group B, when their teams clash on Friday 23 January. Those will quite likely be the toughest 60 minutes their parents will ever watch.
