Volleyball. Reaching the playoff final of the Danish national championships was the highlight of my career, unfortunately "only" with silver as the outcome.
But I was never a pro (not tall or good enough and no real money in the sport in DK). But I do know some pro and semi-pro volleyball players. Although volleyball is a very small sport in the Danish medias compared to e.g. football, handball, ice hockey, badminton and cycling; still volleyball is actually a much bigger sport globally than handball. I also know a few pro and NT players in some other sports like handball and have met a number of other pros.
Did you know Danish NT keeper Karin Mortensen's elder sister Bettina Mortensen used to be captain for the Danish volleyball NT?
And former Yoguslavian and Dutch NT handball star and among the topsocrers in the best Danish handball league Ana Razdorov Lyø is married to one of the Danish volleyball players who has played most NT matches of all time (Razdorov is still playing in the second best Danish league for Odense after giving birth to their child).
(Actually I have also played beachvolley for fun against former male NT player and current general manager for the Danish Handball Federation, Morten Stig Christensen ).
