Handball European Championship – Denmark trembles: The EM-Aus is close – sport


The world champion and Olympic champion does not manage to win in the second game against Hungary. The trial against ex-athletics boss Diack is postponed to June.

Handball, EM: The big favorite Denmark has narrowly missed its chance of a place in the main round of the European Handball Championship. The Olympic champion and world champion struggled 24:24 (11:13) in the second group game against Hungary and after the opening defeat against Iceland must absolutely win the last game against Russia. The Russians lost to Iceland 23:34 (11:18) and have no chance to reach the main round.

Against Hungary, the youngest team of the tournament, the Danish ensemble led by three-time world handball player Mikkel Hansen and goalkeeper Niklas Landin lagged almost throughout the season. The Hungarian defense in particular had a good grip on Hansen, whose dreaded violent throws from the second row almost failed to materialize. In the end, Hansen made just eight goals out of his eight throws on the goal, a low rate for his standards. This means that the over-team of the past few years can no longer make it into the main round on their own. Assuming their own victory against Russia, Denmark must hope that the Icelanders win against Hungary. Iceland is already qualified for the next tournament phase.

Belarus is also further and, like ex-world champion Croatia, faces the German team in the main round. Led by Mikita Wailupau (seven goals), the European tenth of 2018 defeated Montenegro's selection in a direct duel for second place in Group A with 36:27 (17:11). The other German opponents will be determined on Tuesday in season B.

VfB Stuttgart, Badstuber: Second division soccer team VfB Stuttgart will have to do without Holger Badstuber for the time being. The defender suffered a torn muscle in the adductor area in the training camp in Marbella and, according to VfB, is out indefinitely. Due to the injury, Badstuber missed Monday's 2-0 victory of the relegated Bundesliga team in a friendly against Swiss first division club FC Basel. The third division in the second division will play his first competitive game on January 29 against 1. FC Heidenheim.

Athletics, lawsuit: The trial of the former World Athletics Association President Lamine Diack before the 32nd criminal chamber of the Paris court has been postponed until at least June after the opening. The reasons were procedural questions, the presiding judge Rose-Marie Hunault justified the decision on Monday. The country of Senegal has only recently provided information that the investigating judges had asked for in 2016.

The 86-year-old Senegalese has to answer for alleged fraud, corruption, embezzlement and money laundering. Among other things, he is accused of covering up doping samples for cash payments. The former top official was arrested in November 2015 and has been under house arrest ever since. Diack, who was also a member of the International Olympic Committee, himself appeared at the trial opening.
