La observación de diferencias de género en balonmano

(The observation of gender differences in handball)

Overcoming a superficial view regarding the gender in handball, through the identification of differences between women and men in high level competitions is the objective of this work. Knowing on which observational variables or criteria (throwing, effectiveness, zone and referee signs) and categories these differences rely is essential for identifying strategic behaviors. An observational methodology was used to record the events of the game. Two women's and two men's handball matches were selected, belonging to the final phases of the London 2012 Olympic Games. The observational design was nomothetic, punctual and multidimensional. An ‘ad hoc’ tool was designed, and it was implemented by two evaluators. Once the data were recorded using the Lince software, they were analyzed through the data reduction technique Theme. The results evidenced the existence of T-patterns based on gender.
