Oh look, the Asian Women’s Handball Federation Championship yesterday.

Guess who was in Group A.

It’s our old pal Hannah Mouncey!

I thought rugby was Hannah’s sport, but no, handball is Hannah’s real favorite.

I have always been a handball player first. It’s the one constant I’ve had in my life from the age of 18 up until now, almost 30, and all the changes that have happened in between. As much as I’ve tried to get that across, it has somehow always got lost in the media’s obsession with football and the mainstream sporting codes.

I played football last year in Canberra with my mates, just to enjoy it. This year, with Darebin in the VFL, it became a bit more serious but while I’m still aiming for the AFLW draft in October, there’s an event not long after which in many ways holds more personal significance.

After three years, I’ll finally be representing Australia again.

I’ve been selected in the Australian women’s handball team for the Asian Championships in Japan at the start of December.

Let’s have a big round of applause for brave Hannah.
