Daniel’s Diary: Handball European Championship Final here in Denmark

Hi All,

I hope you all have been doing well. Sorry for writing a bit late again but day were busy. Last Sunday it was the Handball European Championship Final here in Denmark. I didn’t get to see the final match live at the hall but we still watched it on a big screen here in school. The whole championship has been a success and it was great to be volunteering as part of the statistics team cause we got to take some photos with world class players.

Apart from that it has been snowing and freezing cold from almost Day 1 that I came back here after the Christmas holidays. Even though there is this bad weather here, we still have our cosy moments in assembly or other activities where we get to listen to some music, play board games or play some billiards in our free time. Classes have been going good also espescially Danish Team Coach Class where we had a short 45 minute presentation by Japan’s Women National Team Coach. Apart from that we also got out first task in Danish Team Coach Class which is doing a 24-hour based activities for a U/16 boys football team to enhance their individual capabilities with regards to mental capability, determination and self awareness. Also the aim of the task is to bring the group together and help in organising a mixture of hard and fun tasks for these young athletes.

In handball it has also been going good and apart from high level training at IHAA, I also had my official first game since I am back here in January after 2 friendly matches. Next Sunday we also have another important game and I am really looking forward and pumped up for it. Next week also a lot of the students will be going abroad on a ski trip but I am staying back in the school and we are having a different week here but it will sure be a fun one.

Lastly but not least, I know that the club especially the Ladies 1st Division Team will be having some changes but I am sure that they will continue to grow together and help each other out in their tasks and follow on the previous things that they have learned. On a personal point of view, I am also happy to be shortlisted for the Gieh l-iSport Malti through MHA together with official Alan Grima. This is a huge step for me and will try to continue on climbing these kind of steps one at a time. This would not have been possible without the help of the MHA itself who backed me up, the Sports Scholarship body for giving me the opportunity to be here in Denmark, Lara who has always supported me and my family and her family who in their own way have always set up a fire in me to continue and work hard in whatever way I had decided. Lastly but also mostly, I would like to thank my brother and mentor Joseph Tanti for always believing in me and giving me and this club that he founded all his best knowledge, experience and love. Surely his work can be surely seen and this is not only from a personal point of view but also from a Maltese Handball Association member.

This was it for this week and hope that you can have a good week-end and rest of the week where you can bring me some happy updates from our rock 🙂 From my end in a few weeks or months time I can also have some new and different activities going on and it would be great to see how you would my new stuff will be received.

Take care and Best Regards
