Tamas Marcz coached Hungary’s men between 2017 and 2022.
He led the national team to medals at big tournaments six times. Guided by Marcz, the Hungarians returned to the circle of Olympic medal winners after failing to make the semifinals in 2012 and 2016. Hungary finished 3rd in Tokyo. That was Marcz’s second Olympic medal. He won gold as a player in 2000.
Before the Tokyo Olympics, Marcz, as Hungary’s head coach, won the European gold in 2020, gold medals in the 2019 Europa Cup and at the 2018 World Cup, and silver medals in the 2018 World League and the 2017 World Championships.
