Balic was the MVP at Championships 5 consecutive times which is quite spectacular. And Handball player of the World a couple of times.

But Wislander received a specific award for player of the century from the IHF. That was last century though, so Balic was not really part of it playing wise.

Both spectacular players. But we have a lot of century left, so high obstacle for Balic to get that award. Specially with competition like Karabatic, Hansen. Who knows what Gidsel will end up like. Or Knorr.
