Romanian women's handball has brought good results for sports fans of late. The same happened this past weekend, when both clubs representing Romania in Champions League grabbed wins. On Friday, in Group C, SCM Ramnicu Valcea defeated 34-27 Germany's Bietigheim, while on Sunday CSM Bucharest won 24-22 against Denmark's Team Esbjerg away from home. For today's Athlete of the Week we had to choose between some of the players performing for the two winning sides. We've picked CSM goalkeeper Denisa Dedu, who had a solid contribution to winning the match against Esbjerg. Dedu had 15 saves during the match, also saving 2 7-meter penalty throws. Her full-match percentage was 42%.

Denisa Dedu was born September 27, 1994 in Brasov. She took up handball relatively late, at the age of 13, and made her debut with Rulmentul, the present-day Corona Brasov three years later. In 2017 she was signed by Siofok of Hungary, which this year won the EHF Cup. She then moved to CSM Bucharest, where she is the first-team goalkeeper.

For Romania's national team, Denisa Dedu played at the 2011 World Cup in Brazil, when Romania ranked 13. At the time Dedu became the youngest handballer to represent Romania at a World Cup, at only 17 years and 3 months. She shinned at the 2016 European Championship of Sweden, where Romania ranked 5th. In the group phase match against Russia, won 22-17, she saved 22 out of 39 throws on target, with a 56% percentage.
