It didn't drag.
After the conviction, Wednesday, of Bruno Martini to one year of suspended prison for corruption of minor and recording of child pornography images, the National League of Handball (LNH) named a new president.
Meeting this Thursday morning, the steering committee unanimously appointed David Tebib as interim president until March 7, the date of the next general meeting.
The appointment of the former president of Nîmes is not a surprise.
David Tébib, who was currently vice-president of the NHL, previously served as president between August 2020 and November 2021 after succeeding Olivier Girault.
In a press release from the NHL on Thursday, David Tebib, 52, returned to the Martini affair: “The extra-sporting sequence that we have just gone through has demonstrated our sense of responsibility and our solidarity.
(…) We are going to continue the projects and the reflections that we have recently begun: changing the format of our competitions, digitizing our activities, structuring our CSR program… The challenges that we wish to meet are numerous and ambitious.
We are indeed in working order to accelerate the development of professional men's handball.
