Our Excellent Eight, fighting COVID19

Posted On 7th April 2020

An introduction to our series of interviews from our President, Marijke Fleuren:

Given these unprecedented times with much of Europe in some form of ‘lockdown’ and while we are unable to meet each other around a hockey pitch, we decided that over the coming three weeks, during midweek, the EHF will publish 8 stories about 8 Excellent Professionals, who are fighting COVID-19 each in her/his way. 

These EquallyAmazing people are also involved in European Hockey in different capacities and we thought that it would be good to honour these people, who represent not only their own experiences but also those of many others who are taking such good care of us all at this time. 

I am extremely honoured and grateful that they have chosen to share their stories with the EHF and I think you will share my feelings of emotion when we bring these stories to you on our channels. 

I would like to say a big personal thank you to Award-Winning hockey journalist, Sarah Juggins, who has brought these stories to life in such an empathic way.
