The International Handball Association IHF announced the results of choice for the year 2021 on Monday. Lander received 24.12 percent of the votes cast and was only slightly before Sweden Jim Gotfridsson from the Ligaral SG Flensburg-Handewitt, for which 23.87 percent of voters voted.
The 33-year-old Dane Landin won the German championship title with the THW Kiel last year and became world champion and Olympia second with the Danish national team. The consignment goalkeeper was also in 2019 World Handballer. In 2020, the election was due to the Corona pandemic and numerous seasonal drops.
The Spaniard Talant Dujshebaev, Ivano Balic from Croatia, the Frenchman Nikola Karabatic and Landins Landsmann Mikkel Hansen had won the trophy several times, but had never been twice in succession world handball.
Toft Triumph among the women
The women won the Danish goalkeeper Sandra Toft from the French master Brest Bretagne handball the choice. In the coaching ranking, the Danish National Coach Nikolaj Jacobsen won the Bundesligaist Rhein-Neckar Löwen 2016 and 2017 to the championship title. The complete Danish success in the IHF election made Jesper Jensen, coach of the Danish women’s national team, perfect. His team was WM-third in the past year.
