NEWS REPORT: Three special awards were given away to successful European handball teams last weekend.
Splendid weekend for Danish and Polish handball
Usually we see them dressed in jerseys, trainers and sweat fighting for the sports distinctions on the courts. Last weekend they changed the scenery and were awarded for their hard work done in the past year. Danish and Polish handball stood up on pedestals of domestic sports contests.
At the official gala of the Best Athlete Contest organised by the oldest sports journal “Przeglad Sportowy”and the national TVP two big events were honored. Firstly, Vive Tauron Kielce were chosen the best club team of the year for winning the VELUX EHF Champions League and remaining unbeaten on a domestic floor.
“One penalty and we are on the top,” said Michal Jurecki holding the statuette on the stage. “For me as the captain, it’s a huge distinction. On behalf of myself and the team I would like to thank the coaches, medical staff, the club and especially (club owner) Bertus Servaas, without whom we wouldn’t achieve the success,” Jurecki added.
