Nine wheelchair basketball players, seven nations, countless unique stories – VIERZEHNEINHALB joins the team of the BG Baskets Hamburg over the 17/18 season. A story about way more than sport and results.
Mareike Miller, Anne Patzwald und Maya Lindholm – these three ladies of the BG Baskets put themselfs on national head coach Martin Ottos shortlist troughout the selection camp in Bad Honnef in the last days and now go to the World Cup in Hamburg.
VIERZEHNEINHALB was with them all the time on site until the nomination. And we could say: you girls really derserve it! Congrats to the three of you and all the other ladies who are nominated so far.
Wow, that was an emotional roller coaster ride! But after three hard days of selection camp we’ve got good news: 27-year-old Kai of the BG Baskets Hamburg was nominated to join the national team squad for the Wheelchair Basketball World Championships 2018 in Hamburg. Congrats Kai, we love it!
An from tomorrow on it’s the women’s turn. National head coach Martin Otto calls his players together in Bad Honnef and makes his decision, if Mareike and Anne will also be part of the World Championships in Hamburg this summer. VIERZEHNEINHALB is with them and we are more than excited!
Asael laid on the ground of the court many times. The crowds darling put everything in one last time. In the end he squirmed with pain because of a cracked rib. He and the other Baskets fighted as a team against Lahn-Dill in the deciding game for the play offs- and lost. Final score: 59:81 (33:33). The play offs are missed now, the frustration of captain Kai and his team was noticeably. Congrats to the best for teams of the division from Wiesbaden, Trier, Elxleben and Wetzlar.
So season is over now? No! It’s not yet over! The Baskets focussing on new goals and make new plans. In the end of April Euroleague is taking place in Bilbao. The final of the season should be celebrated with sportive success as a team. But it’s still a long way to go until then and we have some great other stories ahead.
