Indicators of situational efficiency of winning and defeated male handball teams in matches of the Olympic tournament 2012

The aim of the study was to determine indicators of situational efficiency between winning and defeated male handball teams of the Olympic tournament in 2012. The sample of entities in this study consisted of 30 games that were played by handball teams of the preliminary part of the competition. The sample of variables consists frequency of successfully and unsuccessfully executed elements of technical and tactical actions during a handball match in the phases of attack and defense (14 variables in the phase of attack and 3 variables in the phase of defense). For determination of differences between winning and defeated teams among variables of situational efficiency Mann-Whitney U-test was used. The results showed statistically significant differences between winning and defeated teams in variables: shoot from 9 meters-successfully (p=0.00), shoot from the wing position-successfully (p=0.02), Shot from the wing position-unsuccessfully (p=0.01), shoot from 6 meters-unsuccessfully (p=0.00), shoot from 7 meters-successfully (p=0.00), assistance (p=0.00), lost balls-turnovers (p=0.04) and blocked balls (p=0.01). Winning teams dominated with variables that defined the effectiveness of the game in the phase of the attack, and because of that, they made advantages over the opponentand won the matches. Because of the dinamic of the handball game and differences in a way of playing, more studies need to be done in the future.
