Ani Calvo speaks with us about her years in Siglo XXI and about her plans for the future next.
How has this season been for you?
This season has been special. Normally
each year in Siglo XXI your teammates change and is not
always easy, but we managed to build a great team being all together and
supporting one into the other. That was key. Last year we did not think we could get what we have achieved. But,
being a very competitive team every game we took as a challenge, which
as time went on and we were beating while learning. We've had games where they have not gone well for some reason or other, but the next we were already giving face. In summary a year of good feelings. How has your experience in Siglo XXI been?
Something that I do not regret at all. This experience has helped me grow both in the field of basketball and outside the track. Leave home fifteen years has made me mature. I really took great moments and true friends. How is Ani Calvo with her studies and about the upcoming selectivity? Is it easy to play basketball at high level and be a good student too??
Second high school is not easy. The course is going pretty well and I 'm taking it all along. Throughout
the year I have had to take the time because once the day of training
classes and just , despite being tired, touches study. While there is always time for everything, especially for a laugh with mates. Are you excited with this summer ? Looking forward to play the U18 European Championship with Spain?
Totally excited. I really want to work this summer with the national team and try to earn a spot to go to the European.
