An exemplary love story from Spanish women’s handball

Maite Zugarrondo, one of the three goalkeepers of the Super Amara Bera Bera, leading team of Spanish women’s handball, has decided to abandon the elite sport to take care of her two nieces, who are 4 and 6 years old, over which she has received custody, before the impossibility to reconcile both facets of her life.

After five years in the Donostia-San Sebastian club, where she arrived after passing through Pamplona’s Anaitasuna and the late Itxako de Estella, this 30-year-old Navarran athlete will take over the handball coordination of a Pamplona club, although now she says that the goal now is “to be happy”.
