The full council of Reocín has agreed to put the name of the Cantabrian golfer murdered in September, Celia Barquín Arozamena, who played college golf at Iowa State University, to its municipal pavilion of Puente San Miguel (shown above courtesy of Alan Shipnuck), as a tribute to this born sportswoman in the locality and whose family resides in it.
In a statement, the first deputy mayor and Councilor for Sports of the Municipality of Reocín, Mario Iglesias, highlights that the plenary adopted this decision last night, considering that Celia Barquín “represented and represents the values of sport”.
“Those of us who knew Celia and her family can say that it is an honor for all our people that our municipal sports center bears her name,” the mayor assures.
