Sian's Memory Honoured by EHF

A NEW award has been launched by the European Handball Federation in memory of its former Communications Manager, Siân Rowland, who passed away in December 2008.

The Siân Rowland Media Award was announced during the final weekend of the ninth Men’s European Handball Championship in Vienna, Austria.

The first recipient of the award was Günter Pfeistlinger, Chairman of the AIPS Handball Commission, who worked together with Siân at several European Championships and other handball events in her 10 years with the European Federation.

The Award will be presented on a biennial basis at the Men’s European Championship. The 2010 award was presented at the final press conference of the Euro 2010 event by Tor Lian, President of the EHF and Siân’s brother, JJ Rowland.
