IHF names coaches of the year

The International Handball Federation has announced that Ulrik Wilbek and Thorir Hergeirsson have been voted World Coaches of the Year.

Icelandic-born Hergeirsson (48), who is Norway’s head coach, won the voting in the category of women’s teams while Danish national team coach Wilbek (54) won the men’s competition. 

Wilbek received 34% of all votes and ranked ahead of previous double award winner Claude Onesta (France, 27%), who had been voted IHF World Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2010. Valero Rivera (Spain), Eduardo Gallardo (Argentina) and Alfred Gislason (THW Kiel) obtained 13% of votes each.

Hergeirsson topped the ranking of the women’s coach competition with 32% ahead of Danish-born Morten Soubak (Brazil) and 2010 IHF World Coach Olivier Krumbholz (France), who both earned 23% of votes, Dragan Adzic (Montenegro/Buducnost Podgorica, 16%) and Fernando Eduardo (Angola, 6%). 

Despite missing the Olympic semi-finals in London with his Danish team, Wilbek is highly decorated, claiming the 2012 European Championship title in Serbia after winning the silver medal at the 2011 World Championship in Sweden. 

Hergeirsson fulfilled his dream with three gold medals won within 20 months: First his Norwegian women's team became European champions in 2010, then world champions in 2011 and last but not least claimed Olympic gold in 2012 at the London Olympics.
