Cristina Neagu was also voted the best player in the European championships in Sweden last year and the third marker of the competition with 46 goals.

According to Cristina said

I am overwhelmed. I was sure in 2015 that I will win the title, but I did not expect it this year. I had high hopes, because I was nominated, but this year I am really overwhelmed. I think I am the only handball player in the history of handball to ever win this trophy three times. I would like to thank everyone who voted for me, those who put faith in everything I do on the field.
