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. Georg Dascher played six international matches, two of them in Berlin.
In 1934 he won the German Championship with his home club Polizeisportverein Darmstadt. By profession Dascher was a policeman and during World War II served in the Wehrmacht as Lieutenant, but lost his life on the Western Front in Belgium. He is buried at the war cemetery in Lommel.
