In the latest development from the Asian Men's Handball Qualification for the 33rd Summer Olympic Games (Paris 2024), the Qatar national handball team showcased their competence with a third consecutive victory, outplaying the UAE with a final score of 31 to 23.

The Qatari team demonstrated their dominance throughout the match, taking a four-goal lead of 14 to 10 in the first half and further extending their advantage in the second half, courtesy of a stellar performance by the players.

This triumph brings the Qatari team to the top of Group A, gathering six points after earlier wins against the Chinese and Indian teams with scores of 34 to 25 and 48 to 14, respectively. Their journey continues with an upcoming match against South Korea, followed by a concluding group-stage clash against Saudi.

The teams are divided into two groups: Group A includes Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, the Emirates, India, and China, while Group B comprises Bahrain, Iran, Kuwait, Japan, and Kazakhstan. The top two teams from each group will secure spots in the semi-finals, which are set for the 26th of October.
