As if she had been transported by a cloud from Uruguay, Valenzuela has arrived at home. Maria Valenzuela, who is still wearing the tracksuit from the Spanish women's under-17 team with which she was just crowned world champion but did not make her debut, is now resting with her family. Her medal is around her neck.
- What do you think is the best way to sum up all that you have accomplished?
It was a true dream. It was a wonderful time. I'm still in a fog. We are happy with the things we did together. This was an experience I will never forget. It was a life-changing experience for me as a young girl.
What was your initial reaction to the ending of the final?
-I can recall that I ran for Cata, my partner in the sprint to hug her when the whistle blew. She was crying on the ground. She didn't know she was running.
- What's your first call?
-I called my mom immediately after I arrived at the locker room to tell her to calm down, that she was fine, and that we were world champs.
What details, besides the title, have you taken away the most from this experience.
Imagine many things. I have been impressed by the previews of matches, the videos that motivate us, and the attitude of everyone, the union.
-Your Granada teammates will be very attentive.
Yes, I have observed your breath. They were very attentive, which I loved. They helped me win this. Also, I am proud of the stage that Churriana was my first in my hometown.
Tomorrow (for today), I will train. I look forward to returning and am already planning for the Ceuta trip next day.
