Since this spring Grit Jurack had a injury in her shoulder, and during summer break it wasn’t getting better. After a consulting at the hospital they found a whole in the cartilage that didn’t suit playing handball anymore.
– As it looked in the shoulder, the medical team adviced me to stop playing handball, or else I would have more serious pains and injury. Of course I don’t want that, so then I had to take the decision to stop playing handball.
It came to me as an unwarned fist in the face, I feel. I’ve always said that I’m glad that I have the chance to stop whenever I want. It didn’t happen. I’m very sad by this decision, because we have a good team that I think can win titles this season, unfortunetaly that will be without me now, says a sad but still pleased Grit Jurack after her 20 years long career as a top handballplayer.
