Martin Schulze is honoured with an EHF Diploma of Merit Award.

 

Yesterday evening the EHF President Marijke Fleuren, was very pleased to present Martin Schulze with an EHF Diploma of Merit.

 

Schulze, the former head coach of the men of UHC Hamburg, with whom he won the EHL a record 3 times, 2008, 2009 and 2011 was honoured for his dedication not only to his club UHC, but for being an advisor on EHL playing rules for many years. He is the inventor of the new stick over the head regulation, which has led to some spectacular skills. The experimental rule, first trialed at EHL is now used by the FIH at World level Tournaments.
