At the start of the German handball players’ Olympic preparation, national player Paul Drux sees parallels with the summer games in Rio, where the German team won the bronze medal. “You can feel the same anticipation as five years ago.
Everyone is hot, “said the backcourt player from Füchsen Berlin at a media meeting on Tuesday:” We have a fantastic group together. ”
In Herzogenaurach, the German team has been preparing for the summer games with national coach Alfred Gislason since Monday. Before their departure to Asia, the selection of the German Handball Federation (DHB) will play two international matches in Nuremberg; opponents next Friday will be Brazil (8.15 p.m.) and on Sunday Egypt (3:05 p.m. / both Sport1).
“We want to run out of the tournament with two wins, of course. It’s always better to fly to Tokyo with a tailwind than with a headwind,” said DHB sports director Axel Kromer.
