Dutch rugby team showcases world's greatest handshakes

Friday June 26th, 2015

Athletes spend a lot of time with their teammates and have excellent hand eye coordination, which creates the perfect storm for elaborate handshakes.

The Nationals recently showed off an arsenal of customized shakes, and the Thunder made a play at the title with a series of wonderful handshake videobombs last season, but neither of those, nor any other team shakes come close to what this rugby sevens squad from the Netherlands is doing.

This team is changing the game when it comes to greetings. If someone told you that you were going to watch a video of people shaking hands and be enthralled when you woke up, you would not have believed them, but the Dutch are here to prove you wrong.
