This book recounts the exciting life of one of the great pioneers of Spanish sport, Margot Moles Piña (1910-1987), champion of Castile and Spain in four different disciplines: athletics, hockey, swimming and skiing. With her sister Lucinda de Ella, she was the first to practice athletics in Spain and during the years of the Second Republic she won numerous titles, standing out in the discus throw. She also popularized swimming among women, as she was one of the founding members of the historic Canoe club, and the sport of hockey, in which she won three consecutive Spanish championships as captain of Athletic Club de Madrid.
