Clara Woltering

June 2016 -

Clara Woltering is one hard working athlete and it’s difficult to fully comprehend what she has accomplished in her career. It’s even harder to imagine what she achieves every single day. She is not just a world-class goalkeeper, but also a full-time farmer. Six days a week she gets up very early in the morning, works until 15:00 hours, takes a short break and then – three times a week – she drives to Dortmund attending her club’s training sessions.

Clara Woltering – a fantastic handball player and true role model.
