Handball player Nikki Grote sustained an injury in the run-up to the Olympics. The distributor injured her shoulder during Sunday’s cup final at the expense of her Danish club Odense against Nykoping. The seriousness is not yet clear. “Of course we hope it’s not that bad,” said Lars Peter Hermansen, director of the club, where internationals Louis Abing and Tess Wester were. “She will have an x-ray in the hospital on Monday and then we’ll see if something is wrong.” Play too.
Groot (33) had just decided to play for the Dutch national team again after an absence of more than two years. She is persuaded by national coach Emmanuel Mayunade, who wishes to have her in Tokyo. Groot retired from Orange in January 2019 after a series of successful years. She won the silver medal with the Dutch national team at the 2015 World Cup and the 2016 European Championship, where she was also named the best player. At the 2017 World Cup and European Championship 2018, he won the bronze medal. It no longer existed when Orange won the world title at the end of 2019.
Groot fell in the cup final that Odense won 32-26 fifteen minutes before the end of the match. A reporter from de Volkskrant, who was present, reported that she had fallen wrongly on her left shoulder and had fallen. There is a fear of breaking the collarbone.
