    Hello guys,
    my name is Ines, I am from Linz thats in Upper Austria. My passion is playing Fistball (Faustball)… Dont worry, if you are not familiar with that sport – I will explain when we see in person 😉
    Beside that I am studying science of sport. In the future (After finishing my masterdegrees) I probably start my own business as a trainer. I am really looking forward to learn something new in this field and to get in contact with other athletes who are in a similar situation.
