Since 2003, Fürst was a member of the German national team, and had such a powerful block. She was awarded as the best blocker in several tournaments – World Championship 2006 and 2010, the European Championship 2009 and 2011.

Among her greatest successes in the jersey of Germany was a silver medal at the European Championship in 2011 and 2013.  Fürst also participated at the Olympic Games 2004 – ninth place.

As it was published on the official web site of the German Volleyball Federation, in the future, Fürst wants to focus on playing for the Turkish Eczacıbaşı Vitra İstanbul.

To be honest ‘her personal reasons’ looks like her problems with Giovanni Guidetti.

One player doesn’t make team. So she will ne replaced with somebody else and the national team will continue like before. After 3 years nobody will say her name anymore…
