The Polish Handball Federation found the replacement for Kim Rasmussen. VfL Oldenburg’s head coach Leszek Krowicki takes over on the bench of the Polish women’s national handball team. The 58-year-old Polish handball coach has been working in Germany for more than 20 years, since 2005 he has been coaching VfL Oldenburg, winning the Challenge Cup in 2008. Leading a national team is nothing new to him: he had tried himself as a co-trainer of the Polish national team, as a temporary coach at the German women’s national team and as a head coach at the Dutch men’s national team. He has a great challenge ahead of him to keep the level of the Polish women’s national team: the Polish girls were in the top 4 of the world championship in 2013 and 2015 too. Krowicki will take over the bench from 1 September 2016 as the team failed to qualify for the 2016 Olympic games. His contract is valid until the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokio. The Danish, recent Champions League winner with CSM Bucuresti, Kim Rasmussen left the bench of Poland after the qualification for the EHF EURO 2016. He will take over the steering wheel of the Hungarian women’s national team.
