Krefeld The result of the vote has been known since Tuesday. Experts saw that the Krefeld player was clearly advanced, but the fans, associations and media did not do so.
Niklas Wellen, world hockey champion and captain of the Krefeld Hockey and Tennis Club (CHTC), was named second best player in the world at the FIH Hockey Star Awards. He received 30.3 percent of the votes in the vote in which experts, associations, the public and the media participated. He was bested only by Hardik Singh from India, who received 34 percent of the votes.
It is interesting to look at voting behavior. While the winner Hardik Singh managed to garner the most votes, especially from fans, journalists, national coaches and captains, Niklas Willen was in the lead in the experts’ opinion. However, since only 40% of their votes were included in the result, Hardik Singh was eventually able to win. Given its large fan base in India, the result is not surprising, says CHTC.
Congratulations went from the Hüttenallee club to national coach Andre Henning: the world champions maker received the Coach of the Year award.
