FIVB Volleyball Girls' U18 World Championship

Press release

Agripina Martínez no pierde de vista a sus descendientes




Agripina Martínez, entrenadora de la selección de la República Dominicana que compite en su 17º Campeonato Mundial Sub-20 Femenino de la FIVB, celebrado en la localidad checa de Brno, tiene otro trabajo además del de directora del equipo.

Martínez es la madre de Jineiry y Brayelin Elizabeth Martínez, dos de sus jugadoras en el cuadro nacional dominicano. “Para mí no es difícil combinar el papel de madre y el de entrenadora del equipo”, revela Martínez.

“Es como si en lugar de dos hijas tuviera 12”, resume sonriendo. “Hablo a todas las chicas con la misma pasión, y cuido de ellas de la misma manera, porque conforman un grupo y tienen que crecer juntas”, razona.

“Aunque siempre estoy con mis hijas en casa y luego en el gimnasio durante las prácticas, ellas no se sienten presionadas”, aclara Martínez.

“En casa soy su madre, y en el gimnasio soy su entrenadora. En mi trabajo, mis hijas no gozan de ningún trato especial”.
