Althea Reinhardt has in Kumamoto got a very special visit.
Målvogterens father has travelled to Japan to follow Denmark, and we are not talking about a short visit, for he is in the japanese during the entire WORLD cup finals.
"It is super nice that he has had the opportunity to take down here. It just gives a sense of security, and so it is always nice, your family is here, so I can talk with him after the fighting," said Althea Reinhardt, whose mother has been at home in Denmark with her two younger brothers.
It is not, however, because she has many off hours with his father. An international program is tightly packed, and therefore it will be only after the fighting, the two see each other and talk together.
"To live a little in a bubble. I want to see him, but you also want to be focused on the task. It is just great, he is awake at the same time as I am. So I can always just write to him. It just gives a peace and a reassurance to have him here," says målvogteren.

Every day just to get a reminder that they are there and support is really cool," says Mie Højlund, sharing a room with just Althea Reinhardt.

The two are not only teammates on the national team, and in Odense, Handball.
They are also good friends outside the track, and they have previously told how much it means to have each other, for example to the finals.
Among other things because there is a time difference of eight hours for Denmark, and that the contact with friends and family, thus, is limited.
"We have not so many hours to do well with, before it is night and day. We, when to talk with them, and they are also good to just find the time, even though it is early in the morning for them," says Mie Højlund, who, together with Althea Reinhardt every day looking forward to open a package.
