Also the Austrian players who permanently practice at the WSA are very well featured with the current number 18 Robert Gardos, Daniel Habesohn (number 48) and Stefan Fegerl (number 50).


The reigning Austrian team champion SVNÖ Ströck has the whole team participating in the World Championships: Tetyana Bilenko, Matilda Ekholm, Lea Rakovac, Dora Madarasz and Tamolwan Khetkuen.
