It was around 15:20 hrs on Friday afternoon when the EHF EURO 2014 definitely started for Austria.

This was the time when the bus that had picked up the players from Billund Airport, just the better part of 45 minutes south of Herning, arrived at the team hotel in the tournament's main city as it hosts Group A, one group of the main round and also the semi-finals and the final.

The sixth player to leave the bus was left wing Conny Wilczynski, one of the team's most senior players who was already part of the team at the EHF EURO 2010, Austria's only EHF EURO appearance to date.

He was followed shortly afterwards by Christoph Edelmüller.

The two rivals in the Austrian domestic league as Wilczynski plays for the one major Vienna club, Westwien, and Edelmüller for the other big club, Fivers, have been rooming together for more than a year whenever the national team gathered.

And as they were moving into their temporary home for at least the next week, and possibly longer, they were followed by EHF Photographer Uros Hocevar.
