Resigned shortly after the Olympics, wanting more time with her family and for her job. Ended after 12 years for the national team. Had an important role on the team. A fighter, court sense, tactical. The one all asked for advice and listens to even though she is the quiet type. Was a playmaker who learned to play right wing. Team captain until 97. Together with Anette, these two fantastic wings helped to win the Olympics and are unseperable friends. A friendly and smiling woman who's very popular. Farewell-match against Hungary March 2001 which was her match no. 250 (or rather few minutes). Here she also scored her first and only goal on penalty shot.
Has a record of number
of matches for the national team, namely 250 matches (756 goals)
Debut on the national team: 22/8 - 1988
The players of yesterday
Below you can read a little about those of the players, whom we no longer can enjoy seeing on the national team. Many resigned after the Olympics in 2000 and others left before that due to injuries.
If you miss the "Golden
team" of the 90's - the Atlanta Gold winners of the Olympics in
96 - I can tell you, that you are not the only one.. Ulrik Wilbek has
stated, that such a talented team is only gathered once in a hundred
years and so we will not see anything like it again. Read more about
the players' results during the previous
championships and which players performed in each championship..
