Thanks to the good offices of the indefatigable Rena Fairbrother (find her on twitter, your handball life will be better) Handball Views is pleased to be able to present an interview with Holly Lam-Moores, British international and current Viborg HK player.
In the interview, Holly talks about the highs of the Olympics, the relative lows of what’s followed and her future plans, as well as her hopes for handball’s British future. It was recorded after the recent Esbjerg-Viborg game.
Apologies in advance to Alison Chowns, the splendid interviewer, and Holly herself but I can no more edit the file than you could find the stop button at the end of the interview.
It’s been a while since Handball Views caught up with how the Olympic Brits are getting on. At senior international level we know they’re basically busking on the underground to pay for travel and training for matches but for a happier picture our thoughts turn to Denmark.
Today sees Kelsi Fairbrother in action for Team Esbjerg against the girls in green of Viborg HK whose line-up includes Holly Lam-Moores.
After a pretty disastrouse Champions League run (10 losses from 10 games) Viborg are finding life a little easier domestically. They are tied for first spot with FC Midtjylland and 12 wins and a draw from their 13 matches. Esbjerg lie in fifth spot and when the two teams last met in the league in September it was a 26:18 win for Viborg.
The match starts at 6pm UK time. Viborg do a nice little app that allows you to follow games in real time so should you be, for example, stuck on a train following the match that way passes the time quite pleasantly. Beats Angry Birds anyway.
