CONSTANTINI Daniel (1949) France / Team handball
The most famous French handball coach led his team all the way to the Olympic semi-finals at the 1992 Barcelona games, where they won a bronze medal. The following year, the French team came second in the world championships, and finally won the world title in 1995.Amongst others, the team included Martini, Volle, Gardent, Lathoud, Mahé, Munier, Stoecklin and Richardson, and was nicknamed the "Barjots", (the crazy ones), after their semi-final against Iceland, for which all the players had dyed their hair blonde to provoke their Scandinavian opponents. Always at the head of the French squad in Atlanta and Sydney, Daniel Constantini and his captain, Jackson Richardsson, did not reach the Olympic podium again despite being tipped as outside favourites.
