Domagoj Duvnjak (born 1 June 1988)[2] is a Croatian handball player who plays for HSV Hamburg. He became a member of the Croatia national handball team at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. On 26 January 2014, he was named the IHF World Player 2013.

In August 2009, Duvnjak signed a three-year contract with HSV Hamburg worth €2.25 million, including a transfer fee of €1.1 million, making him – at age 21 – the most expensive handball player in history of the sport.[3]

Following the end of the 2013/14 season the playmaker will join HSV rivals THW Kiel after opting not to extend his contract with Hamburg again, but signing with them instead.[4]
