Over a month of exciting action from early July to mid-August saw Youth Age Category competitions steal the show on courts across Europe, with a total of 10 events taking place — and 30 medals celebrated.

Hungary’s double title defence

In the women’s competitions, once again it was Hungary who enjoyed the major successes, as they scooped both the W17 and W19 EHF EURO 2021 titles after claiming them in 2019. Russia also had a strong summer, with both their U17 and U19 sides reaching the medal round at their respective EHF EURO events, where the U17 side claimed bronze and the U19 squad clinched silver.

While Hungary overpowered Russia in the final of the W19 EHF EURO 2021 and France celebrated bronze in that event, it was Germany who faced Hungary in the W17 EHF EURO final, ultimately taking the silver.

Medals in both genders for six nations

Germany emerged as the only nation to celebrate EHF EURO medals in both genders, as the M19 team took the EHF EURO trophy ahead of Croatia and Spain. Meanwhile, North Macedonia, Faroe Islands, Belarus, Poland and the Netherlands earned medals in both the women’s and men’s EHF Championships.
