Headcoach Thorir Hergeirsson has chosen Gro Hammerseng as norwegian captain for the upcoming European Championships in December. Gro Hammerseng has earlier been captain for the norwegians until Olympic Games in Bejing. Since then she’s been out of the national team, until she came back this summer.
The last two championships Krisitne Lunde-Borgersen functioned as a captain. That ended in EC-gold in Macedonia 2008, and a bronze medal in China during the World Championships 2009. Kristine Lunde-Borgersen is not playing the upcoming championship because of her pregnancy.
