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.
