A true captain
He was only given the responsibility following the injury of Uwe Gensheimer's injury, but Steffen Weinhold has proven to be a worthy team leader on and off court during this EHF EURO. After leading the young team to an unexpected good position in the group stage, he was injured during the very dying minutes of the close main encounter against Russia.
But just like a sea captain never leaves the ship, Weinhold decided to remain here in Poland and, even if incapable of playing, he is supporting his team by staying with them. We spotted him last night doing a little workout in the gym, surely he wants to come back strong asap.
