2021_05_17 Recibimiento Club de Balonmano Rincón Fertilidad Málaga Costa del Sol

El presidente de la Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, ha recibido este lunes en el Palacio de San Telmo, sede de la Presidencia, a las jugadoras del Club de Balonmano Rincón Fertilidad Málaga Costa del Sol, que se han alzado esta temporada con tres importantes trofeos por primera vez: la Supercopa de España, la Copa de la Reina y el EHF European Cup. "Sois un ejemplo en el que mirarnos todos los andaluces y sentirnos orgullosos", ha señalado.

En este punto, ha valorado y reconocido el sacrificio, esfuerzo, talento y coraje de estas jugadoras, que escriben con este reciente palmarés una nueva página del deporte andaluz. Además, tal y como ha indicado, con el beneficio añadido de haber hecho que se ponga la lupa sobre las mujeres deportistas.

"Desde el Gobierno de Andalucía luchamos para visibilizar a las mujeres. El deporte es una caja de resonancia y ayuda a muchas mujeres a romper obstáculos, techos de cristal y alcanzar objetivos. Sois un referente, un modelo a seguir para muchas mujeres y niñas andaluzas", ha declarado.

Costa_del_Sol

The Costa del Sol is a region which comprises the coastal towns and communities in the western part of Málaga province in the south of Spain, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. The name translates as "Sunny Coast" in English. Formerly a series of quiet fishing settlements, the region has been completely transformed in the latter part of the 20th century into a tourist destination of world renown, with a near-continuous urban agglomeration of settlements and resorts running along the length of the coastline.It consists of the area west of the city of Málaga and east of the border with Cádiz province, along the Mediterranean coastline. It includes the towns of Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola, Mijas, Marbella, San Pedro de Alcántara, Vélez-Málaga, Nerja, Torrox, Puerto Banús and Estepona.Settlement in the region dates back to the Bronze Age, and it has been alternatively ruled by many cultures such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Visigoths and Moors, before the Reconquista.Traditionally composed of fishing villages, the area was discovered for international tourism in the 1950s and has since been a popular destination for foreign tourists not only for its beaches, but also its tourist culture.In recent years the Costa Del Sol has become known to golf enthusiasts as the 'Costa Del Golf' due to the vast number of high quality golf courses in the area. Attracting golfers from all over Europe and indeed the world, the area has benefitted from an increase in tourism and is seeing an increasing number of new complexes being developed to house the growing number of keen golfers in the area.The area is heavily urbanised, with a thick ribbon of densely-packed buildings running along most of the coast. Architectural styles are a mixture of low-rise, whitewashed villas and much high-rise development, especially among the tourist resorts, much of it unsympathetic to the geography.

Trivia

In the videogame Final Fantasy VII, there is a seaside resort town called Costa Del Sol in the North Corel Area.
