This was like coming home
"”This was like coming home”"

"the Noel, 19, back on the basketball court after hormone replacement therapy"

"barely a year ago entered the Moa Fillet-Hammarström forward as transsexual and basketkarriären was shut down."

"hormone Therapy was initiated and Noel Fillet-Hammarström never thought that he would get to play basketball again."

"The 27th of January 2019, he was back on the pitch."

" I thought that the rules and standards set so hard into the wall that it would not be able to become something. But this was really like coming home, " says Noel Fillet-Hammarström."

"Moa Fillet-Hammarström was a promising talent who played in the youth team, won the SM-gold in the U19 and played ligabasket with Telge. On February 22, 2018 entered the Moa developed as a transsexual."

"In april 2018 ended basketkarriären. Moa started the journey towards finding yourself in a male body."

"– I started going on the investigation for transsexualism when I was 14 or 15 years. Then I got my diagnosis christmas 2017. After that it went quite quickly and I started hormonbehandlig after I finished in april 2018. I shot it in several years and it is the toughest decision I have taken. In the ten years I have based my identity on being a basketball player, " said Noel Fillet-Hammarström to Sportbladet earlier in the year."

"The interview was made on 8 January. Then did not know Noel if he would ever play basketball again."

"”Flaccid, I miss basketball...”"

"Since the summer of 2018 has the 19-year-old has been an assistant coach for Södertälje Basketbollklubb. He has discussed a comeback with the head coach Joakim Brunnström."

"on Friday, he received a good news which meant that he was back on the pitch in Sunday's meeting with Huddinge Basketball."

"Sportbladet met Noel after his comeback."

"– It really was like coming home again, it was lovely very. When I was on the pitch it did not feel like I had been gone. Which was perfect, I miss basketball, " says Noel."

"you Thought you would get to play basketball again?"

" No, never. I thought that the rules and standards set so hard into the wall that it would not be able to become something. I saw no other way out than to quit. Then came the here on the wallpaper in the summer - to begin work and include transgender people in sports. In there somewhere I began to believe that it could happen at the end of this season or next season. I got word on Friday that I would get to play. It was a shock, but so fun!"

" I was very nervous before."

"”It meant a lot for me”"

"what have you noticed of support from teammates and leaders?"

" It has been very nice. But I expect almost nothing else since I have known these people for so long, I have coached them also. When I'm on plan, I make a difference for myself, I make a difference for others and I think it is important to keep these people left in the sport. Let me make a difference. It meant a lot for me."

"Were there any hard feelings on the plan?"

" It was special that we met Huddinge, sweden, which has taken a similar battle before with slöjförbud. I got the greatest kramen directly by the Nina (Baresso) when I came into the hall today, it was so amazingly beautiful. How would never be able to take this situation in a different way. She leads the squad in a way that causes it to become very accepted."

"How you celebrate it here?"

"– Haha. I'll probably just go home, take in everything, to be with my close friends and be where I was from the start. Continue to have your feet on the ground. This is not the end, this is a small beginning of something. I am proud of myself that can get me this. I am also you can read over Jocke (head coach Joakim Brunnström) that highlights this. It is a step forward from where we were yesterday. I'll just go home and eat ice cream..."
