Sundays are special for Soledad Garcia. And mother's days are enjoyed twice as much. Now he shares them with Robertina (4 years old) and Antonia, the baby that last year, at this point, was on his way. And whose pregnancy demanded the Sole to give the most of herself.
The world champion in hockey is installed in San Rafael ( Mendoza ), and serves as head coach of the local team. And, moreover, there is some time to share his time with the family's leoncitas.
“I'm cordovan thoroughbred, but Robertina already talks to Mendoza tonada and we laughed. I'd love to have a male, to know what love for a male son is. Nicholas, my husband, once threw the cards and told him that we would have three children and one would be a male. We'll see...”
So far, you can project your own women's hockey team with the Garcia family. Her sisters were players and her mom made Mommy Hockey . “With Vero and Vale, my sisters, we grew up in Universitario . But there are too many players and I'm not going to complete the team,” he joked.
“ La Sole”, Mom.
Antonia was born at eight months of gestation and went through hard times. “With Robertina the pregnancy was spectacular. But with Antonia a month earlier I had to take rest to advance the delivery. I couldn't even get up to go to the bathroom. Just to me that all the time I do things and I can't stand still .”
“We spent three weeks in Neo, because the baby was connected with artificial respirator. We were going to visit her every three hours, Robertina didn't understand why she didn't see her sister... You find out a lot of things, and I think in some respects I compared it to what I had to face as a team player . It makes you value more what you have,” said Soledad García.
The Lioness also defined herself in the role of mother. “At first I was unpatient, and I even changed my mood that the house is not tidy. I'm still very demanding, for example, with the care of clothes, with meals... but Robertina is four years old! He loves to drink coke and eat fries... I can't be that heavy.”
And he completed: “Ten years ago I wouldn't have imagined myself in such a situation because I was training with Las Leonas in high performance , and that means being very same, a lot of ego and demand. Now I see my daughters, how partners they are and how Robertina makes her sister play and laugh... It's a full happiness.”
Soledad Garcia breaks her on the court, and inside doors, in her home. A lioness mother, who fills us with joy. The player doesn't stop winning titles, including “best mom”.
