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.
From 16th to 26th of August the Wheelchairbasketball World Championships take place in Hamburg. Overall 16 male and twelve female national team will fight for the title as the best team of the world.
Kai Möller and the men’s national team have to face the teams of Marocco, Canada and Iran in pool A. Mareike Miller, Anne Patzwald and Maya Lindholm play against the USA, France, Argentina, China and Algeria in pool B.
On top Marcin Balcerowski is in the game with the Polish national team as a Baskets player. But anyways, everybody will be in: whether live in the gym, at home watching the stream or just by heart and mind. We are really looking forward to this great event in summer!
In the end it was 7th place. After three defeats in the group stage against the OWLS from the UK (66:77), Kardemir Karabükspor Kulübü (69:78) and Besiktas RMK Marine Istanbul (55:61) from Turkey there wasn’t anything more possible. Last match for place 7 against London Titans coach Holger Glinickis team decided with 70:54.
It wasn’t the weekend, as the Baskets might have expected it or at least hoped for. Anyway the Baskets played as a team and had a good time in Bilbao. Now the sportive part of the Baskets season is over. We are excited to see, who is going to stay in Hamburg and plays on next season.
We are not sure about, what to like more: Going to Bilbao in Spain finally for the season highlight? Or the fact that coach Holger Glinicki and play maker Ali Ahmadi signed their contracts for the next season. We love both of it!
In Bilbao some tough fights with great opponents wait for the Baskets during the group stage on the way to the semi at the Euro League 1. That’s the goal of coach Holger. We hope for even more and feed you with fotos and stories! The latest results you may find right here.
