The ladies’handball championship in December takes place without the backroom player Anne Hubinger.
The left hand of the six-time German champion Thuringian HC had suffered a foot injury in the training of the national team last Sunday in Turkey, which requires at least a six-month break.
In addition to a mid-foot fracture and bone fragmentation at the heel, all the ligaments in the ankle are torn.
THC concept “thrown over the pile”
“It will take at least half a year for Anne to think about handball again”, said THC coach Herbert Muller. Due to Hubinger’s failure, the whole concept of THC was “first completely thrown over the heap,” Muller said.
The deadly Hubinger also played a key role in the World Championship plans of German coach Michael Biegler. Biegler will now possibly bring left-hander Jennifer Rode from the German record champion Bayer Leverkusen into his WM cadre for the right back.
President Michelmann believes in WM in the Free-TV
Whether the WM will, however, be on TV is still open. However, Andreas Michelmann, president of the German Handball Association, continues to believe in pictures from the tournament on Free TV.
“We are very hopeful that we will not only manage the women’s World Cup well organisationally, but also get pictures on free-to-air television,” said the 57-year-old Tuesday in Magdeburg. So far there is no partner for live broadcasts from the World Cup (1st to 17th December).
So far no agreement
Michelmann confirmed on Tuesday that there are no new developments. Since the German TV stations could not reach an agreement with the katarian right-holder “beIn Sports”, the men’s World Cup tournaments 2015 and 2017 were not visible on freely available television.
2015 the pay-TV channel “Sky” jumped in short notice, 2017, the games were broadcast by a DHB sponsor on the Internet.
Federal trainer Michal Biegler covered himself with the subject of the TV contract.” It’s not my primary site to discuss TV times. I would love for it to happen,”he said before the national games on 28th and 29th. October in Magdeburg and Berlin against the EM-Second Netherlands.
