Croatia has won the World Handball Championship. Streets of Split were unsafe few hours ago, due to hundreds of people expressing their joy with guns. Croatian state television has even interrupted its regular news program in order to air last couple of minutes of the final game between Croatian and German national team.

This victory is going to be great news, but only for couple of months. Few Croatians now remember any triumph that doesn't include soccer. They ignore Iva Majoli and her Roland Garros win, and even Ivanišević (Ivanisevic) and his Wimbledon miracle is slowly fading from national memory.
