The Senior Women's Indoor Hockey Team is nominated at this year's Namibia Sport Awards in the category of Sport Team of the year. Their coach, Erwin Handura, is proud of the work his team has done in terms of growth.
“I'm proud of what our team have done this year. I would like to congratulate them for the nomination. They are not there by accident, they worked hard to be where they are. I hope they will win.
