Pau Ribas is the Globasket ambassador for the season 2017-2018

Today we are very delighted to announce that Pau Ribas will be ambassador of the Globasket 2017-2018!

Last month we presented Leonor Rodriguez as ambassador of the season Globasket 2017-2018 and today is the turn of Pau Ribas. 

 

 

Pau Ribas is a Spanish professional basketball player who currently plays for FC Barcelona Lassa.

He played in all youth teams of Joventut Badalona. He played his first senior year in the CB Prat, a youth team linked to Joventut Badalona. He played there for 4 years, where was in the best years of the club, having teammates such as Rudy Fernández and Ricky Rubio and being coached by Aito Garcia Reneses and Sito Alonso. 

Then Pau Ribas decided to sign 3 years for Saski Baskonia in 2009. Afterwards, he played with Valencia Basket two seasons. In July 2015, he signed a three-year deal with FC Barcelona Lassa. Ribas won the 2015 Supercopa in which he was the MVP.

Unfortunately, he was injured last year. But with patience, effort and perseverance Pau got to play at high level again.

As a national player, Pau has won the gold medal at the Eurobasket in 2015. He’s in the last national team list of selected players for Mundial Championship 2019.

Out of his basketball career, last year Pau Ribas obtained a Master’s degree in Sports Management.

We had a short talk with him and he’s so happy to enjoy again with us.

 

Why have you decided to repeat as Globasket ambassador?

I renew as Globasket Ambassador because I always like to give support to children who start from youth teams, and they have a passion for basketball. In fact, I was one of the first players to get play in the first team of Club Joventut de Badalona from the U12 category.

These tournaments and the effort of volunteers and Globasket make the player compete further. I really enjoyed the experience of last year and that’s why I want to repeat it.

What message would you transmit to the children?

Basketball is just a game to have fun, to learn and to share values. Globasket has the capacity to make learn children while they have fun playing basketball.

Also, it’s important to inculcate young players that in competition they should never lose respect and maintain hard work, dedication and teamwork.
