The 2017 IBSA Goalball European Championships will be played in the Pajulahti Sports Institute, Finland on 18th-22nd September.
The organisers of the event, the Finnish Sports Association of Persons with Disabilities, will publish a six-part “Road to Pajulahti” video series to present goalball as a sport and to follow the home team’s preparations towards the European Championships. There are English subtitles in the videos.
In the fourth part of the video series Finnish national team player Erkki Miinala speaks about combining work and goalball training in everyday life. He also reveals the similarities between his work as a transcriber and playing goalball. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQYfNRhxnlg
Five of the “Road to Pajulahti” videos will be published prior to the European Championships in September and one will be published after the tournament.
