Britt Goodwin proved she is a winner by landing Â£100,000 from Norway's version of Big Brother. Now she plans to bring Great Britain the 'golden glory' in handball cometh the London Olympics, according to the dailymail.co.uk.
Goodwin, 29, was born and brought up in Norway where her father, Steve, an ex-Norwich and Southend midfielder, finished his career.
"I applied to go on Big Brother for a bit of fun," she told dailymail.co.uk.
"I went in as a reserve and my philosophy in life or sport is, I'm in it to win it. It's certainly not the taking part that counts!
"I didn't have any real game-plan. I just aimed to be myself. It worked and I was a bit of a celeb for a while.
"It was a great start to my life because to have that extra bit of money at 22Â meant I could repay my student loans. I got myÂ bachelor degree inÂ nursing and now work asÂ a psychiatric nurse."
Recruited by Team Great Britain, she may not strike gold but giving up without a fight is not what she will do, ever.
