Rolling to Stockholm


Autor: AGebek | Kategorie: General, Blog, Staff

The 48-hour day is over. Immediately after training on Saturday I drove to Stockholm with Thorsten Kunert in the equipment truck. That was stress.

First of all, we had to make a detour to Berlin. The story with the pants. The details will come later, only that much: Thomas Winter sent another set of pants from the national team's pool with ICE Express from Hamburg to Berlin. We had to pick it up, although the navigation system already calculated that we were short on time. So let's cucumber through Berlin. We flew through Mecklenburg -Vorpommern for it, Foot on the gas and always at the limit. It comes as it comes, the ferry was of course delayed and we could wait in Sassnitz. No matter, The main thing is on board. Almost four hours crossing from 23:00 to 3:00. I also closed my eyes for an hour somewhere on an uncomfortable seat. And kept looking at the screen, the one without sound, but brought a film with Robert Redford with Swedish subtitles.

The view from the deck was fantastic. Behind us the full moon, which was reflected in the sea and before us a portent of the midnight sun. The sky showed a twilight in the north with great colors for hours. But since it was freezing cold on deck, straight back in.

From Trelleborg it is 600km to Stockholm. Through the night, which was no longer at half past three, we drove north. And fought against sleep. Thorsten had threatened me before the trip: Because I once called him curmudgeon on the blog, should I suffer on the journey and then fly out of the car in Sweden. But we got along well and luckily he drove most of the route, because my eyes kept falling shut.

One 10:30 we were in Stockholm on time. Katrin Bartels received us. She had already organized the most important things. First the jerseys were put in the washing machine. We had to look for them first. But when searching, you quickly come into contact. Team Canada players helped us out. Later I showed Austria the flat there.

Then we had to unload the bus. I do not know, how many times i have run. But I know, that we have a hell of a lot with us. Really much. We're also the only team with an equipment room. Thorsten has a storage room, half full of old furniture, to get. Within a few hours she was unrecognizable. Here is his realm in the basement now. We have a lot more with us than our opponents anyway. We are the only ones to have our own doctor with us.

The tempo in training is faster. Preparing for Sweden begins.

The coaches pulling tempo and the team has been awarded. It's fun to watch. Today, the press was there and the team trained straight with the game jerseys. The jerseys and pants were now the number one issue. Especially with the pants not all fit as desired. Some were not purely, the other matched twice pure. Sometimes the size M was smaller than S. Chaos at lunchtime. Now in training it has settled some. A solution is in sight, but more on that later.

For press event was TV, Radio, local press and the Huddle. Jörn Maier and Daniel Koch stood to answer questions in a relaxed atmosphere.

For me now, the departure is at. Next time I'll call from Sweden. Together with Thorsten Kunert go ichdas Equipment to Stockholm and movies tomorrow then the first two encounters. Departure is at 17:30, one 22:30 we take the ferry from Sassnitz and we still dannhaben 600 km from Trelleborg to Stockholm before us. In the morning we will then arrive. Katrin Bartels as Chef de mission is flown today and participates in the Technical Meeting. Thorsten honks, I have to go…..

Out of Africa


Autor: AGebek | Kategorie: General, Blog, Inside the Team, Staff

If you look at the women's team included Staff accurate, one will notice, that it is composed of many yet very different individuals. Since the question was deputy to: How these individuals are to act as a team in Stockholm? After all it is one of the points, the successful German teams always constituted. team spirit. And if you closely you can still accurate, one finds at once but many similarities between the players and staff. Some of these are obvious: All are for the first time this. Everyone wants a medal. Externally, the most bronze and my say but actually gold. But then there are similarities, that are not obvious at first glance. What shall Bathsheba Buczylowski, Quarterback, 23 already have years of Cologne and Equipment Manager Sonja Schmidt from Berlin together? It is the love of a continent: South.

Bathsheba "Batze" Buczylowski studied African Studies and English. Even if she says: "Those were the first two compartments on the alphabetical list of subjects" , yet more to it. After high school and a year abroad in England Batze took a long time, to think about, what they are really interested in life. And these are clearly the languages. "I love languages. I think Linguistics for one of the most important sciences in general. Through language we are only become human beings and if we see ourselves all, would prevent much suffering in the world ". Four years ago, during the World Cup Batista was the first time in Africa. In South Africa, she worked as a volunteer in the inventory of wildlife in a nature reserve. "So we are three or four teams in 10 – 30 walked kilometers a day on fixed routes through the bush and animals have counted. What I experienced there – so much. Hyenas make the scariest noise I've ever heard. at night they came to our camp and that sound like a cross between a baby's cry and Wolfsheulen very scary. On the way to the toilets I met a face to face. She has become so frightened fortunately like me and ran away. When I reached the saving toilet block was just someone already there before me – a snake, and even a poisonous. Fortunately, they did not bite me but the snake specialist the next day. Which then had and a very painful day one arm so badly swollen like an elephant's leg. South Africa is blessed with a gorgeous nature and wildlife. "
About her future plans, she tells: "So before much and so little time. I would like to Tanzania for a few months. I learn Swahili since 2-3 Years and on the coast of Tanzania Kiunguja spoken – the Hochswahili. At the moment, I understand only one Swahilisprecher, speaks slowly and clearly. Swahili is the most beautiful language, I've heard. I'm currently working as a student assistant at the Department of Applied Linguistics and help in caring for scientific projects in the field of literacy, bilingual education and in Lehrstuhlorganisiation. I want to do good. "

If Batista comes into storytelling, you will understand her better self-assessment: "Actually, I can only two things right: tell stories and play quarterback. "So if you want to hear exciting stories from a distant continent, should at Camp talk times longer with Batze.

Sonja Schmidt will do so determined, can they do themselves tell exciting stories from Africa. she has 2006 Tanzania Kilimanjaro, with 5895m the highest mountain in Africa, defeated. For Sonja a long-cherished dream, of came true. Three days earlier, she had the Mount Meru 4.562 m climbed. While for many the ideal holiday for two weeks all inclusive is, Sonja spends her free time in the desert of Libya. Without running water, Asleep she finds without bed and under the open sky here relaxation from everyday office. "If you cross the desert, you find yourself. You can learn very quickly, which enjoys a life of luxury is here in Germany but. Such trips change a person enormous and can see a lot of things differently. "

And just as Africa unites two members of our team, so there are many points of contact between the numerous players. Some are mothers, some study the same subject area, many have gained experience in other teams, are active as arbitrators or have the same taste in music. And since there is a point, they all united.

American football for women.

Because it all will agree and Sonja Schmidt, who played himself for thirteen years, agree: "The national team is for me and especially for women's football is an important step in the right direction, to the women's football to support ... and making it even more popular, and finally to refute the false prejudices "Women and Football". "

In this sense

One Team – One Goal – be ONE

Facts about the team: 3,7 Tons of air freight


Autor: AGebek | Kategorie: General, Facts about the team

For the world championship, Christiane Langkamm has to fly for 3,7 Get tons of our most precious cargo.

Our players!

Strictly speaking 3689,1 kg live weight brings the German women's national team together on the scale. That makes an average weight of 81 kg per player.

Of course there is more for the flight, even if a lot of the equipment is driven with the van. In addition to the players' luggage and equipment, we also have the coaches and supervisors. Here, however, the exact recording of the weights was dispensed with. At whose request this was done, is still being determined.

We hope, Not to exceed the weight on the way back. The medals hoped for shouldn't be the problem, but Sweden is known for Godis, Cinnamon buns, Semlor, Princess cake and chocolate balls. Not to forget the oat biscuits from the famous furniture store…

Equipment – Die Helfer im Hintergrund


Autor: AGebek | Kategorie: General, Inside the Team, Staff

Ohne sie geht es nicht. Sie bleiben meist im Hintergrund, aber sie sorgen dafür das alles überhaupt erstmal funktioniert. Die Equipment-Manager.

Für unsere Nationalmannschaft konnte Christiane Langkamm zwei Orginale aus Berlin für uns gewinnen. Thorsten Kunert und Sonja Schmidt.

Ich persönlich beschleicht ja immer das Gefühl, dass alle Equipment-Manager miteinander verwandt sind. Ich habe mittlerweile viele Vereine und Auswahlmannschaften kennen gelernt und fast genauso viele Equipment-Manager. Man erkennt sie sofort. Ein wenig an der Optik, aber auf jeden Fall am Verhalten.

Es ist eine seltsame Mischung aus Service und Griesgrämigkeit. Wenn man etwas braucht, dann kommt ein altes Ritual in Gang: Ein abwiegendes Gesicht, ein prüfender Blick. Ein bisschen mürrisch wird dem Wunsch nachgekommen. Egal ob ich nur eine Schraube für den Helm, einen anderen Gatorade-Geschmack oder 10 Step-Over Backs haben wollte: Erstmal habe ich immer das Gefühl, dass mein Equipment-Manager das aus eigener Tasche zahlen muss. Aber dann, egal wie exotisch der Wunsch war, kommt ein: “Na klar” , “Haben wir da” oder “Da finden wir eine Lösung”. Und auf einmal können sie sogar freundlich lächeln.

So ein Exemplar ist auch Thorsten Kunert. Mit der Berliner Schnautze ausgestattet, aber auch mit dem großen Herzen. Wenn im Camp einem Trainer mal irgendein für das Training benötigter Gegenstand nicht direkt bereit stand, dann lag das höchstens daran, dass der Trainer nicht in dem Teil des Platzes war, wo er sein sollte.

Coach Trabi: “Thorsten, hast Du mal einen Ball?”
Thorsten: “Nö”
Coach Trabi: “Nicht mal einen?”
Thorsten: “Nö. Ich habe nur einen Ballsack und der liegt schon an Deinem Platz”.

Beim Frühstück nahm Thorsten die Bestellungen auf und lange vor dem Training war er bereits ständig überall unterwegs, damit später jeder richtig ausgestattet ist.

Das allzeit freundliche Gesicht unserers Duos war Sonja, die immer gute Laune versprühte und Thorsten tatkräftig unterstützte. Bei Wind und Regen waren beide draussen. Wir konnten vom Frühstückstisch aus sehen, wie beide den Platz inspizierten und vorbereiteten.

Ein ganzen Kastenwagen voller Equipment hatten die zwei dabei. Jerseys, Bälle, Stepover Backs, Shields, Cones, Gatorade, Obst, Becher, Handtücher, und so weiter. Die Liste ist endlos lang. Sogar ein Blockschlitten war mit dabei. Den brauchte am Ende aber niemand, weil der Trainingsplan ja mehrfach umgestellt wurde. Klar, dass Thorsten das am Ende noch mal erwähnen musste.

Nach dem Training wurde wieder alles eingesammtelt, sortiert, gereinigt und dann wurde sogar noch die Wäsche gewaschen. Alles war perfekt bis in letzte Detail organisiert.

Eine weitere Eigenschaft haben alle Equipment-Manager auch noch gemeinsam: Egal wie perfekt alles war, egal wie zufrieden wir mit ihnen waren: Es kann immer noch besser werden…. und sie wissen jetzt schon wie.

Aufräumen ist angesagt

Nach dem Coaches-Meeting machten sich als beinahe letzte die Berliner Autos auf den Weg: Coach Trabi, Physio Steffen, Team-Managerin Mariam und ich fuhren bis unters Dach vollgequetscht mit dem Auto in die Hauptstadt zurück, während die Equipment-Crew den von “Anzak Autovermietung Berlin” gesponsorten Lieferwagen gen Osten steuerte. Am heutigen Vormittag trafen wir uns dann gleich wieder, um den Kleinlaster zu entladen. Wassertonnen, Step-Over-Bags, unfassbar dreckige Trikots und sogar ein (Spielerinnen, dankt es dem Matsch!) nicht benutzer Blockschlitten kamen zum Vorschein. Kisten, Tüten, Becher, Tape, Leinwände, Beamer, Kühlboxen, Probehelme, Werkzeug und Ersatzteile…
was haben wir nicht alles angeschleppt; das Auto sah aus, als ziehe ein gesamter Haushalt um. Jetzt ist alles wieder gut verstaut, die Waschmaschinen laufen auf Hochtouren und wir bereiten uns geistig bereits auf das nächste Camp im Juni in Strausberg (bei Berlin) vor. Von dort geht es dann direkt zum Flughafen Berlin-Schönefeld und zur WM nach Stockholm.
