It's rest and relaxation for Valdemoro ahead of Brazil

Madrid/Spain - Amaya Valdemoro is hoping some rest at the end of a busy domestic season will help her recover from a niggling shoulder problem in time to help Spain at the FIBA World Championship for Women in Brazil. Valdemoro has just helped BC Volgaburmash win the Russian title.

I am recovering and I know that I will improve. On Friday, I will have a test done on my shoulder to rule out any problems. I really don't think this will affect me in the World Championship, I certainly hope not. I will take some days of rest before I begin to train with a personal trainer in order to get to top fitness and be ready to practice with the national team in order to prepare the World Championship in Brazil said Valdemoro.

Spain is in Group A of the World Championship, which will be staged in Brazil. They open their tournament against Korea on September 12 and will also take on Argentina and hosts Brazil. The 1.83m Valdemoro turns 30 on August 18 and will head back to Russia after the World Championship.

I will remain with Samara for a further two years. I am very happy at Samara, of course, it's very different to Spain but I play in a team that is full of star players, in a club that has a great organisation and that treats us very well added.
