L’Spar Girona lost yesterday, by surprise, one of the pieces in the first template. And she is not a minor player, because although she enjoyed a few minutes, she was one of the most loved both in the locker room and by the fans. Helena Oma considers it time to “get on another train” in search of more prominence, and this happens to join the ‘Teaching in Lugo, with whom he should already make his debut tomorrow against Valencia. At the Uni since 2016, where he arrived at the age of 19 from the Almeda de Copa Catalunya, the winger leaves with a league under his arm (2019) and the team’s recent classification for the quarterfinals the Euroleague, as the main sporting milestones.
A year ago now Oma suffered multiple serious injuries to his left knee, with the anterior ligament broken and affecting other structures, which forced her to go through the operating room and had her off until the beginning of this course. In fact, as he revealed Pere Puig yesterday at the farewell ceremony, in October he raised the possibility of leaving “but then we decided to take some time to see how things were going.” Oma, though with Alfred Julbe played most matches, is looking for a more protagonist role. Put yourself to the test. And this in Lugo he will be able to do “even though I am aware that the minutes I will have to earn and that there they have promised me nothing ». Faced with the offer of the Galician club the representative of Oma again proposed the termination of the contract and it was agreed to do so after the bubble of Euroleague d’Schio.
«Girona has changed my life. It wasn’t until I got here, thanks to the opportunity the club gave me, that I didn’t consider having a sports career. At Uni I learned a lot and grew up as a player and a person living with very talented players “, he assured. He regrets not being able to say goodbye to the fans “from the track”, but considers that “this is not a farewell, it’s a goodbye”. “This is the best time for me. Sometimes you have to be a little selfish and have to look to your future. I think I caught on the opportunity that can allow me to continue to grow as a player “, he added, insisting on his gratitude to the club for all these years. On February 14, Oma will be Uni’s rival for the first time in the Women’s League duel to be played in Lugo.
This was the Helena Oma’s fifth season at the club, although during 2017/18 it was ceded for a time to Cadí La Seu. She has been one of the most beloved players by the fans, who has always valued her involvement in the team.
