Martorell, 04/08/2017.– It’s 7 pm and Aroa González has just finished a national league #rugby match she has played with her team, INEF Barcelona. She plays in the hooker position, the same as when she is the captain of the Spanish national women’s team, which is known as the ‘Lionesses’. With just enough time to shower and have supper, this Catalan native from L’Hospitalet de Llobregat then drives to the #seat factory in Barcelona, where she begins her shift at 10 pm. Week after week for more than a decade, this team captain has balanced her passion for #rugby and elite #competition with her job at #seat.
“Rugby is everything to me, it has made me who I am. It’s taught me a lot of values that have helped me through life”. These words were spoken by a standout player in Spanish women’s #rugby, who we joined in the team’s final training session prior their debut at the World Championship in Ireland, a 12-nation #competition of the best teams that is kicking off next 9 August.
