The Swiss national team right wing and former Croatian NT member, Nik Tominec, has decided to retire at the end of current season.
The 31-years old lefthander from Kadetten Schaffhausen has problem with hips which forced him to stop in summer 2023.
- Unfortunately, over the past few months I’ve had to realize that it’s already time to end my career at the end of the season. It’s a considered decision based on the condition of my body. The message my hip was sending me was clear. This decision was very difficult for me because I will miss everything that handball has given me as a player. This sport has rewarded me with more than I could ever dream of.”
Kadetten’s president Giorgio Behr:
- Nik Tominec is our longest-serving player, a figure we can identify with and one of the best-known faces of this team. He has helped shape the team on and off the field for the past decade. I wish him that he can enjoy his last season and end it with a highlight.” Nik Tominec also emphasizes: “We have a lot planned for the next few months. It would be particularly nice to retire as a Swiss champion in handball.”
Tominec has 11 season in “orange jersey”. He won 5 national championships with Kadetten.
