Adelaide Thunderbirds are the ANZ Champions for 2013
WANT to know what it felt like for the Adelaide Thunderbirds players to win the 2013 ANZ Championship?
We caught up with all 12 players after yesterday’s 50-48 Grand Final triumph over the Mission Queensland Firebirds at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre to get their reactions.
NATALIE von BERTOUCH (captain)
“I’m just thrilled. It hasn’t sunk in because we got to enjoy it for all of 10 seconds when we thought we were going to win. But I’m just so proud of the girls and excited and happy.”
“It’s great, fantastic. It’s not sunk in yet. It’s surreal, it’s just amazing.”
“This one is really special (of my three ANZ Championship winners’ medals) because we’ve been building these values and the only reason that we’re here (as champions) is because of those values.”
“It feels surreal, I feel like I’m in a dream, it hasn’t quite sunk in yet.”
“It’s just surreal.”
“I’m unbelievably proud in pink.”
“I feel like I’m on cloud nine. I don’t think anything can beat this feeling of euphoria and I’m just ecstatic. I can’t put it in words but I’m going to lock it up in a bottle and keep it forever.”
“Amazing, a once in a lifetime feeling - the best.”
“There’s no words (to describe how I feel). It’s so exciting.”
“Amazing, all a bit surreal at the moment. It’s just really exciting to be part of it all.”
“There are no words to describe it, we’ve worked hard as a team and we deserve this. (In the last quarter) I was out of my seat screaming at the girls to push on, it was hard, we had our ups and downs but we finished off as a team really strong.”
“I’m just ecstatic. (It’s) amazing.”
JANE WOODLANDS-THOMPSON (coach)
“Just joy would be the main emotion. I’m just so proud of the culture we’ve created and the athletes we’ve managed to attract and keep in our program and tonight’s just a result of the culmination of a lot of hard work from a lot of people.“
