She scolded him a butcher

If a big tournament is coming up, then France's handball player for 20 years, always a favorite. They took 18 medals, no fewer than 11 of them in Gold. For the world Cup in Germany and Denmark, they occur not only as favorites, but as the title defender.

And her Trainer, the next week is only 42 years old, can be a gold medal already unique. As Didier Dinart, France 2017 world Championships-won Gold, he was the second handball players according to the German Heiner Brand, both as a player and as a coach, champion of the world. However, in the event of fire, it was once Gold.

Costantini, the God of

a French outfield player has made more successes than Dinart, which ended in 2013, his active career. Twice Olympic champion, three times world champion, twice European champion. This includes Champions League victories with Montpellier (1) and Ciudad Real (3). Six-time French champion, five-time Spanish Champion.

And yet, Dinart in 2016, did not know what had happened to him, as he after two years as an assistant to the head coach of the national team's rise. "If you had told me 25 years ago that this little Boy finds from Guadeloupe once-in-a French Association of a place, and it was only a part-time job – I would have laughed out loud. And now I'm doing the Same as once Daniel Costantini, who was for me a living God!"

Costantini is the Builder of the French Handball miracle. In 1985, he took over the national team in the depths of the basement of obscurity and led it to the top. In 2001, Costantini handed as the champion of the world to the successor to Claude Onesta, five years Dinart had played under his "God".

"Play" might be the wrong name for Dinarts activity on the football field. "To fight, to plough," fits the grab might be better suited to his – however, the efficient highly – operations. 1,97 m tall, 107 pounds, with almost glowing eyes – as he stood in defence. He was a master of the Defensive. Seemingly insurmountable. As a Rock. "Le Roc" they called him awesome in France, "La Roca," he was called in Spain.

"defend the dream", describes the characteristic title of the book, in the Dinart its way from Guadeloupe to Olympic Gold in 2012.

his athletes Began football life. Long jump, Running, ball-poking, or Basketball were the disciplines in which the young man in Pointe-à-Pitre tried to French Antilles first. "But that was fine, I needed physical contact. In football, however, the Talent was missing to me." Because his brother played football, Didier there. "Go" is the correct expression: The five Francs, and gave him to his mother for the Bus division. 45 minutes, 45 minutes, he went back to the foot. "Everyone said to me that I have a future in this sport. I was great, the best scorer of Guadeloupe."

What was the value, he felt, as he dared with 15 years on the French mainland, to Dijon. "Since it was clear to me very quickly that I expected, light years removed from the bin, what a top athlete." Rather than give up, he worked even harder. Handball was his Sport. However, it was clear to him that he would hardly have a future as a backcourt shooter, the circle runner position, he was made palatable. And even more of the body went hand in hand contact with the opponents.


Dinart grabbed not to understand football just strong. He struck at the beginning of his career. "Then a broke me against players of the jaw. As I understood: If I take the prey, blows, I need to the corners once."

In his years of apprenticeship Dinart was not yet "Le Roc". Opponents railed against him "butcher", "dentist", or "Mindless". Of a sports Director, said once, dismissively: "Of Dinart you do not need to expect too much, he understands nothing of football."

The wounded, but gave him also power to make everything even better. The defense work was clean, his Reputation grew. Had to "in my time, you work probably a little more to impose and enforce." Today, the Association have some very good options, it is a Talent by the Grid event.

As a coach, he feels: "The youth is different; the importance of "sacrifice" also." He says the value. Because he's not expected that everyone can be so tough and determined opponents, such as Didier Dinart fact.

Not everyone puts his personal Ego in the Background as the "Rock". About himself he talks very reluctantly. He always speaks in the Plural. Much more important than his Person, the Handball is a collective.

And he mentioned how difficult it is for you, so his Co-Trainer, Guillaume Gille, and him, to remove the last name from the world Cup squad. With Nikola Karabatic, one of the most important players of the last years is missing due to a foot surgery, he is not even a next set value.

For the first Time a world Cup will be held in two countries: Germany and Denmark are the hosts of the tournament, which starts tomorrow. The Final will take place on 27. January, in Herning (DEN). The Germans play in Berlin (and later in Cologne), the Danes in Herning and Copenhagen. For the first Time since 1978, the world Cup will take place on Danish soil.
