First in Spain and third in Europe in handball

The mayor of Benalmádena, Víctor Navas; and the Councilor for Sports, Joaquín Villazón, have held a meeting with a group of young people from Benalmadena who with their recent sporting achievements have placed themselves at the forefront of beach handball both in Spain and in Europe.

They are Mariam González, third in Europe with the Spanish U-18 beach handball team; María Trujillo,  third in Europe with the Spanish U18 beach handball team, and runner-up in Spain with the Andalusian team in the Spanish U18 Championship of regional teams; Malena Díaz,  third in Europe with the Spanish U18 beach handball team, and runner-up in Spain with the Andalusian team in the Spanish U18 Championship of regional teams; Antoine Miranda, champion of Spain with the Andalusian team in the Spanish U18 Championship of regional teams; Mario Miranda,  champion of Spain with the Andalusian team in the Spanish Under-16 Championship of regional teams; and Fernando Estella, champion of Spain with the Andalusian team in the Spanish U18 Championship of regional teams.

The six athletes have been accompanied by their family members and sports technicians, and have highlighted the enriching of the experience, both because of the importance of sports achievements, and because of the large number of colleagues they have met during the championships. For this reason, they thanked their families and coaches for their support, as well as sponsors, including Puerto Deportivo, whose manager, Manuel J. Jiménez, was also present at the meeting.

“As a government team we are enormously proud to have athletes who achieve these sporting achievements, which are very positive for the city and sport in the municipality, as well as being a rewarding experience for them,” the mayor has valued.

“It is not a bad investment for local companies to sponsor sports clubs: they will carry their names throughout the national geography, and sponsors are essential for grassroots sports,” said Navas, who recalled that sport is one of the areas “in which the people of Benalmadena are having the most success”.
