Kretzschmar criticizes IHF resin-free decision: You should prove that is dangerous

One of the iconic faces of modern handball, Stefan Kretzschmar, criticized an intention of International Handball Federation to abandon using of resin in handball until the end of 2017, when new Molten resin-free ball has to be ready for the massive use.

  • In this day and age I suspect behind every positive new change an economic gain for anybody, said Kretzschmar for SPORT1 and commented reasons for that decision:
  • Someone has to prove really that resin is absolutely harmful, then we must naturally also worrying. It is only apparently noticed in the 20 years that it is injurious to health, or it was not an issue,” said the 43- years ex-world class left wing, who is now president of DKB Bundesliga team Leipzig and handball commentator for Sport 1.

    Ok! Donc plus de crampons en foot car ils sont dangereux pour les joueurs après tout! Et puis pourquoi pas enlever la carbonate de magnesium de l’haltérophile,gymnastique,escalades… C’est peut-être trèeeeeeees nocif! Sans déconner…
