Joana's word

I started playing indoor Volleyball in Zurich Unterland at the age of 13 years. Looking the Heuchler/ Kobel pair, victorious at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, my dream of winning a medal at the Olympic Games has taken shape. On my way to the elite, I first played in LNA for the Volleyball Club of Schaffhausen in central position. In 2012, I decided to focus solely on Beachvolleyball. This discipline is very physical and is played only by two. So we cannot be substituted. For this reason, the mental aspect plays a decisive role. I played my best season in 2016 which was crowned with the participation in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
