Svenja Konowalczyk certainly deserved this unofficial title in German women's football. Because she is preparing for higher academic degrees at the University of Heidelberg, but is at home in Kiel and until October 2009 has successfully studied sports science with nutritional science and pedagogy as a minor in the state capital of Schleswig-Holstein, she lays the remarkable distance of around at every home game of the Baltic Witches in the season 700 Kilometers back. Because she is well known by the "sea witches", she can still be part of the team despite the long distance and can keep fit in the Mannheim Knights football school team during the week. After the camp in Silberhorn, 25-year-old Svenja also received the accolade from the coaches of the women's national team. As a cornerback, she will be able to travel to Stockholm with Freya Kleine and represent the Kiel colors.

"My first contact with football was a bit strange", Svenja remembers. “My sister had a boyfriend back then, who in turn was Freya's brother. Because Freya was already playing football back then, one day she took me to winter training. I thought that was so great, that I stayed with the Witches. "

In addition to their athletic achievements, who catapulted them into the 45 squad, Svenja also has extensive Scandinavian experience, because she stayed in Norway for a long time during her studies. The anticipation is correspondingly great and the Kiel women showed themselves at the GFL Season Opener on 1. Mai 2010 also very busy and advertised with proper Viking disguise among the spectators for the World Cup and asked for a donation for the fare. “A lot has already come together and funding applications have already been submitted to the city of Kiel and the state. The regional professional association AFVSH and the ASC Kiel have already given us generous support, so that we are all of good cheer, the cost of the camps, be able to finance the helmet and the trip to Stockholm. "

So it can start soon and Svenja is eagerly looking forward to the sporty opponents: “Because none of the participating nations have played that many international matches, nobody can really predict, who can become world champion. Of course, the USA and Canada are favorites, but we also have a certain tradition to prove. It applies to us now, that we continue to prepare as well as possible in the remaining time until the first game. I'm in close contact with Freya, of course, and the last preparatory meeting in Berlin-Straussberg will certainly bring the team together even more. "

„Toll, you are in the national team! also you get there money?"- So many reactions from my friends. But unfortunately, the opposite is the case,: The cost is for normal mortal Football players, their land want to represent with her favorite hobby at the World Cup, difficult to apply.

So Svenja and I made our thoughts, how we could get the money together. We already received financial support from our association (ASC As e.V.), and the AFVSH. Other proposals to the city of Kiel, the LSV and regional companies have already made.

But we still have to bear most of the costs themselves, we decided, wander the Season Opener of GFL in Kiel with the donation box.

So we were not to be overlooked, armed ourselves with Viking helmets and Hawaii chains in Germany colors. There were also shirts, on which we had quickly even ironed by hand the WWC Logo. A small Germany flag completing our "outfit". During the Tailgate Party came many Kiel fans to us and filled our piggy bank, while others probably just wondering, why we looked so funny. But there has to, who wants to raise money ;). Overall, arrived that day at the 100,- € together, and many congratulations and supporting words - thank you very much to the fans Kieler!
