Valeria Bese – Romanian Olympic delegation’s flag-bearer in Beijing

published in issue 4222 page 13 at 2008-07-11

Handball player Valeria Bese (Oltchim Ramnicu Valcea) has been elected the skipper of the handball national team, that position being vacant after Steluta Luca’s withdrawal, and she will also be the flag-bearer of the Romanian Olympic delegation during the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games 2008 in Beijing.

Valeria Bese, 28 years old, has won most of the votes cast in the Romanian women’s handball national team’s training camp in Cluj, surpassing the number of votes that goalkeeper Luminita Hutupan obtained.

Bese has played for Silcotub Zalau before transferring to Oltchim. Her consistent record includes the world title with the youth team (1999), the juniors’ European title (1998), the 4th place in the World Cup 2007, the City Cup (1996), the Cup Winners’ Cup (2007), the Champions’ Trophy (2007), 4 national championship titles, 2 Romanian Cup trophies and a Romanian Super Cup.
