She also starred in commercials and promotes her own clothing brand. Irina is not afraid to shock subscribers with either word or deed.

When Imke was just appointed the head coach of the men's team, the correspondent of the German edition Welat during an interview asked her a provocative question - does Wubbenhorst warn the players before entering their locker room so as not to find them naked.

While the woman on the team's coaching staff still draws some disapproval from some people today, Henderson believes things have changed for the better over the past few years.
