GB court Norwegian star

Great Britain may have unearthed a new star as they prepare for the London 2012 Games.

Norwegian first division player, Helene Vinknes from Kristiansand-based club, Vag Vipers, has been invited to trial for the British side.

The 24 year-old defence-specialist has a British grandmother, and believes that she could qualify to play for Great Britain at London 2012.

Vag finished seventh in the Norwegian first division this season and made it the semi-finals of the Norwegian Cup.

According to reports on the Norwegian website fvn.no, the British Handball Association is now looking into the player's eligibility to play for Great Britain.
