Margrét Björg on board as assistant coach.
Margrét is a recently graduated sociologist that studies gender inequality in sports. When she heard about Athena she saw it as a perfect opportunity to be a part of the program and start working towards evening out the gender imbalance instead of studying something that is clear as daylight to everyone. Margrét has never played basketball, she is a soccer player, holding caps for the U19 Icelandic national team, and currently plays for Fylkir in the Pepsi-league in Iceland. Margrét has put in a lot of effort to understand the fundamentals of basketball. Margrét is an activist, she believes in justice and equality, and is ready to go to work.
