The situation happened during the match between the Czech Republic and Hungary, at the first time-out called by Kim Rasmussen in the first half. A volunteer which was supposed to hold the microphone during the time-out came too close to the face of the Hungarian head coach, which was disturbed by it, so pushed it away – you can watch the situation on this Video from Danish tv2 during the game – then the same thing happened one more time some second later. In that moment, the Hungarian physiotherapist Szikra-Mezey Csaba took the volunteer and put him away in order to everybody can do their work.
With this incident during the timeout, Hungary missed precious seconds of those sixty allowed for the timeout.
The Hungarian Handball Federation will pay a fine of €1,500 (one thousand five hundred Euros) for the severely unsportmanlike and violent behaviour of Szikra-Mezey Csaba towards a volunteer during a team time-out.
A part of the fine, i.e. €500 (five hundred Euros), is imposed on a suspended basis for a probation period of one (1) year starting as of the date of the present decision.
In addition, a suspension for the duration of the entire Women’s EHF EURO 2016 is imposed on Szikra-Mezey Csaba on a suspended basis for a probation period starting as of the date of the present decision until the last day of the competition.
