Alina Grijseels is Women's Handballer of the Year
Alina Grijseels has been voted the Women's Handballer of the Year. The BVB captain, who previously claimed the award in 2021, won the vote by a record margin.
Alina Grijseels has been voted Germany's best female handballer for the second time. In a vote that has been conducted annually by the readers of "Handballwoche" since 1978, she prevailed by a large margin once again. She amassed a total of 5562 points and therefore finished well ahead of her two international team-mates, Emily Bölk of Ferencváros (1728) and Xenia Smits of SG BBM Bietigheim (1512).
Grijseels is the first Black & Yellow to receive the coveted award on two occasions. Michaele Erler (1995), Franziska Heinz (1997) and Clara Woltering (2017) previously won the tradition-steeped accolade once each as BVB players.
