With four highly successful M19 Younger Age Category Events held over the past weeks in Croatia, North Macedonia, Bulgaria and Latvia, Respect Your Talent saw its Summer Tour launch for male players alongside European youth handball tournaments.

Five former top handball players acted as ambassadors: Vid Kavticnik (Slovenia), Stefan Lövgren (Sweden), Carlos Prieto (Spain), Laszlo Nagy (Hungary) and Victor Tomas (Spain). Kavticnik and Lövgren attended the activity day held during the M19 EHF EURO 2021 in Croatia, while the M19 EHF Championships were attended by Prieto (North Macedonia), Nagy (Bulgaria) and Tomas (Latvia). Overall, more than 500 female and male players attended the Respect Your Talent Summer Tour across Europe.

“My personal definition of talent is that someone is born with some talents and this is only the beginning. I think it is around 10-20% and then it depends on how you develop this talent with your persistence and discipline throughout your career. It means you are respecting your talent; you know you are good but then you are also responsible for yourself. It is your responsibility how will you develop, how would you like to develop.”
