"Amanda Zahui hailed for his emotional speech at the Swedish sports gala. "
"Itself was the star terrified. "
"– I shook the whole time when I was up there, " she says. "
"”this award is for all of us that are too thick, too long, too black, too dark, for the girly and for pojkiga. For us that is different. God loves us because we are different'."
"Amanda Zahui spoke from the heart in his acceptance speech after having received Sportspegelpriset on the sports gala."
"In an interview with Fiba she talks about the nervousness before she stepped up on the stage. "
"– I felt physically sick and had to take of me the high-heeled shoes I had on me because I couldn't even go, "says Zahui to Fiba and continues:"
"– I shook the whole time when I was up there. I could really feel it and I forgot some parts of the speech in my head that I really wanted to say. I always have fun when I'm on the pitch, but having to go up on the stage and know that it was live on tv, plus all these unknown faces staring at me, it made me obviously scared."
"”going To put Sweden on the map”"
"Zahui was prepared in the reactions, but not that they would be so many and so positive. "
"– I had not had my phone over night and when I came home it had exploded. I couldn't believe that it happened. It was crazy, " she says. "
"Zahui, who currently plays WNBA with New York Liberty, is one of the supporting players when Sweden play EM in Latvia, starting on June 27. "
"Stjärncentern believe that the team can go a long way. "
" We have a high level player with the ”killer instincts” and we want to win. We'll show all of it and we will put back Sweden on the map, " she says. "
