Biography

Field handball was only part of the Olympic program once, at the 1936 Berlin Games. The German Reich dominated their two preliminary round matches, beating Hungary 22-0 and then the USA 29-1, before winning all three matches in the final round, including a 10-6 win over Austria in the deciding match that won the gold medal. Wilhelm Müller played two matches in Berlin, and earned eight international caps in total. He was also a member of the 1938 World Championship-winning team. With his home club SV Waldhof Mannheim they won the German Championship in 1933 and were runners-up in 1937.
