Biography

Field handball was only part of the Olympic program once, at the 1936 Berlin Games. The German Reich dominated their two preliminary round matches, beating Hungary 22-0 and then the USA 29-1, before winning all three matches in the final round, including a 10-6 win over Austria in the deciding match that won the gold medal. Willy Bandholz was a member of the team in all five matches. The same year he finished second in the German Championship with his home club Oberalster Verein für Wassersport.
