This is me: Barbara Arenhart
A stalwart and history-making goalkeeper for her national team and a self-described nomad when it comes to club handball: Barbara Arenhart has spread joy across Europe in a career unfolding across eight different countries since she left her native Brazil. In the most remarkable year of her life, “Babi” both lost her mother and won the World Championship title — a duality that represents exactly who she is. The person behind the fiery attitude on court can be summarised in two words: Resilience and joy. Life brings challenges, and Arenhart has faced more than her fair share, yet has learned it is all about simply continuing on and finding the beauty in the process.
