  • Cathrine Bergan was previously an active athlete and had her life turned upside down from being a football goalkeeper every day to no longer being able to get out of the apartment. After she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in October 2017, she has received aids that allow her to live an almost similar life as before and has now been completely hooked on a sport, namely parafencing. Dan Damasceno-Lundesgaard has long sports experience after starting with fencing as training after a serious spinal cord injury at a young age.After more than 25 years as a member of Njård fencing, Dan has held most of the roles as athlete, referee, coach and board member for the club. Dan Damasceno-Lundesgaard started with fencing as training after a serious spinal cord injury at a young age. Dan has held the roles as athlete, referee, coach and board member for Njård fencing. He has been Norwegian and Nordic champion in team fencing, in addition to having competed at home and abroad for a number of years. Dan studied coaching and sports management. He participated in the Olympic Games in Beijing as an assistant to Njård fencing’s then coach, Klavdij Jadlovsky. It is his conviction that sports should have a mission beyond being a pastime, and he has participated in sports projects aimed at disadvantaged children and young people in Africa and South America. Dan took the initiative to found the Drammen fencing club, and made this a pioneering club in the work of establishing parafencing as a sport in Norway and in terms of expanded social responsibility. Dan has since the start of Drammen fencing club been head coach/sports manager and the club’s general manager. Cathrine Bergan was previously an active athlete and had her life turned upside down from being a football goalkeeper every day to no longer being able to get out of the apartment. After she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in October 2017, she has received aids that allow her to live an almost similar life as before and has now been completely hooked on a sport, namely parafencing. Something she never thought she would start with or was interested in before. Cathrine is now Norway’s first and so far only parafencer and has made Norwegian fencing history after the tournament in Estonia. She is now betting heavily on OL2024 and representing Norway with the flag on her chest as the first parafencer from Norway. Sports have always been important for Cathrine growing up and in her situation today, especially physical activity is important for her mental health and quality of life.
