Among the 17 players included in the initial list of the Coach Lucas Mondelo to prepare for the 2021 Women’s EuroBasket in Valencia (June 17 to 27), the great novelty has names and surnames: Laia Flores Costa. The Mataró base is the only one of the internationals that had not yet responded to any call from La Femenina: “I’m super excited and excited to be here”.
“I was very surprised that, despite being players who have won practically everything at club level and with the National Team, they are so close people and they are helping me so much. I have been very positively surprised”, Flores highlights about whom, since last weekend, are his new teammates defending the national jersey.
Despite not having been part of the players who were summoned in the last Windows of November 2020 and February of this year, the great course that Laia has completed in the Endesa Women’s League in the ranks of Campus Promises has had its reward: “I never try to lower my arms. If something doesn’t go my way, I try to motivate myself until I get it. Although I am very aware of the players who are in the base position”.
The current player of the Spar Girona reveals in this report how he found out about his first call with the Absolute: “At the end of a training session in Girona I saw that Lucas Mondelo had left me a voice message on WhatsApp. I didn’t say anything to anyone until I heard it by myself in the car. From that moment, except my family, I did not tell anyone about it”. A day that I will certainly never forget.
