Former USA coach Isidoro Martinez on Junior Worlds and Liga Asobal

New Ademar Leon Coach Isidoro Martinez

French Handball website, Handzone, has a short, wide ranging interview with former U.S. Men’s National Team coach, Isidoro Martinez.  In the interview Martinez reflects on Spain’s performance at the Junior Worlds (he was their coach), his new job coaching Spanish club Ademar Leon and the state of the Liga Asobal.

Martinez was the U.S. Men’s National Team Coach at the 2006 Pan American Elite Championships.  The U.S. lost to Greenland 30-29 in the bronze medal match, narrowly missing qualification for the 2007 World Championships.  Martinez did a credible job of putting together a competitive U.S. side in a short amount of time and also helped Gary Hines secure his first professional contract in Spain.
