Celebrating Caroline Nerbas: Inspiring Handball Journey and Dedication to Women in Sport

Nov 16 2023,

Our own Caroline Nerbas, IOHA's Development Officer and WIS Lead was featured in the Female in Sport Forum, and she shared her inspiring journey in the sport.


Originally from Brazil, Caroline's passion for handball led her to represent her state in national and international tournaments. After moving to Ireland, she faced challenges in finding a suitable handball club but eventually found her place in Olympic Handball.

Caroline's dedication to promoting the sport and creating role models is commendable. She aims to establish a senior team in Ireland and inspire future generations to consider handball as a viable sport option.
