This is what Mork did and what the Danes react to. Mork’s shot was a free throw. When she threw the ball, she stood with one foot inside the three-meter dotted line on the outside of the Danish court. Television images clearly show this, which is not allowed.

– Error of judgment at a crucial moment, writes the Danes TV 2.

They spoke to handball referee Henrik Mortensen. He confirmed that this was a refereeing error, but it did not give the Danes any reason to be angry.

– I am not saying that the referees cost Denmark the victory. But realistically it is the referee’s job to make sure the free throws are taken correctly, and that was not the case. We can find many such mistakes during the match, but this one doubles in value because it ends up being very decisive, Danish Channel 2 handball expert Bent Nygaard tells the channel.

After the match ended, the situation was replayed, as the referees went to the touchline and looked at the result. They chose to accept it.
