Kiel handball player Magnus Landin is hospitalized

Dhe Danish national handball player Magnus Landin from THW Kiel had to break off his participation in the national team course in Denmark due to an injury. As the German record champions announced on Wednesday, the 27-year-old left winger will remain in a Copenhagen hospital for observation until the weekend. “Magnus is well looked after in Copenhagen,” said Kiel’s team doctor Detlev Brandecker, who keeps in touch with his Danish colleagues.

In the match between Kiel and Füchsen Berlin (26:34), Landin sustained a blunt abdominal trauma when he collided with an opponent. However, symptoms only became apparent during training with the national team, to which the attacker had traveled immediately after the game. Examinations by the Danish team doctors revealed that a bruise had formed in the liver. As a result, Landin was hospitalized for observation. It is still unclear how long he will be absent from THW. “Further investigations are necessary for a reasonably reliable prognosis,” added Doctor Brandecker.
