After more than 20 years in the world elite of handball has the Danish goalkeeper, Kasper Hvidt, announced in a mail to among others Ritzau, that he retires after this season. TV2.dk writes:
"I have achieved virtually everything that can be achieved as a handball goalkeeper, so the decision to stop now do not really have been so severe. I've had the most incredible experiences with the national team, abroad, at home and so much more. And I have helped to create and build the organization in KIF Kolding-København, which has been enormously inspiring and instructive," he announces in the mail.
