The British Handball Association has launched its ‘British Handball Calling’ campaign to find talent from across the world for its men’s and women’s senior, Under 20 and Under 18 teams.
Capitalising on the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the BHA are putting the call out for current players who are eligible to play for Great Britain.
If you are considering responding to British Handball’s call, then here is what Angelica Wallen had to say about the campaign.
Sweden’s Angelica Wallen won silver with her country at the Women’s EHF EURO 2010 in Norway/Denmark and even played handball in London – at the 2012 Olympic Games – and the left-back, who scored 22 goals in the Women’s EHF Champions League last season with Danish club Nykøbing Falster Håndbold is also supporting the campaign.
“Representing a country is something really special and I think everyone should take the chance,” said Wallen, whose Grandmother is from England. “I did think about playing for Britain before I was selected for Sweden,” continued Wallen, who was born in Sundsvall, Sweden, and who still has relatives in England, “ but to play for another country is really a big individual decision to make and from playing together with GB women’s London 2012 player Kelsi Fairbrother in Denmark, I know she only had good experiences from her time with Great Britain.”
