Even two days after the unfortunate lost Olympic final of Pyeongchang most ice hockey players do not want to take off their silver medals.
The Mannheim-based David Wolf and Dennis Endras met with their medals around the neck with clubmate Sinan Akdag and handed him his silver medal.
The defender was injured from the winter games in South Korea after the preliminary round left. From the subsequent medal transfer the Eagle players posted several pictures on Instagram.
Defense ace Christian Ehrhoff even announced to bring his daughters to the kindergarten and the school with his medal around his neck. “The may then touch every time,” said Ehrhoff the “image”.
DEL clubs ennoble players for success
Before returning to the daily routine of the German Ice Hockey League, many clubs once again praised the historic appearance of the national team at the Olympics.
“The silver medal for the German national ice hockey team is one of the greatest sensations in German sports history and even comparable to the 1954 World Cup and Boris Becker Wimbledon victory,” said Claus Gröbner, CEO of ERC Ingolstadt.
Also champions EHC Red Bull Munich is pleased about the performance of the national team: “This success is very important for this unique sport It is now up to all participating associations, leagues and clubs, the extraordinary media attention to use all-inclusive,” it said in one club statement.
