The 24-year-old from the German Vice-Champion SG Flensburg-Handewitt graduated from the final round in Hungary and Slovakia most of the commitments in the DHB selection weakened by 16 Corona cases and was with 28 hits also best German scorer. “John has done a lot for our team with a lot of playing,” said national coach Alfred Gislason.

“This is a nice surprise and great, so get a recognition for the d1. I feel the nomination as a compliment for the entire team,” Golla said. “I hope we stay longer in the competition at the next tournaments and achieve our sporting goals.” The DHB team had missed the semifinals and completed the em as seventh.

The most valuable player of the tournament Golla’s club colleague Jim was named Godfridsson. The 29-year-old Swede received this award for the second time after 2018. That succeeded only two players: Ivano Balic from Croatia and Nikola Karabatic from France.
