Our 18-82 Q&A series continues today with Spurs Women Spaniard Lucia Leon…
Using the year of the Club’s formation as inspiration, we asked Lucia to choose 18 lifestyle questions to answer from a selection of 82.
1 - What is the first thing you do in the morning?
Lucia: “I check the time and if it’s earlier than 10am, I will go back to sleep, but if it’s past 10, then I'll stay awake.”
2 - How do you relax?
Lucia: “Listening to music.”
3 - What keeps you going through the tough times?
Lucia: “I would definitely say my friends and family. The fans also help when it comes to the football side of things.”
4 - What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Lucia: “There is a saying ‘Your head is more likely to give up before your body does’. I always think about this phrase to stop myself giving up on something. I’ll always try to push myself as much as possible to accomplish a goal.”
5 - Which emoji do you use the most?
6 - What is your most used WhatsApp group?
Lucia: “The one with all my college friends!”

13 - Have you ever thought ‘I wish I was somewhere else'?
Lucia: “Yes, every time I was in a test environment, either school or fitness related, I wished I was somewhere else.”
14 - What do you remember about your Spurs debut?
Lucia: “I just remember it was freezing and I ended up being in the starting line-up at the last minute against Lewes. It was Shannon Moloney’s birthday that day and I recall the twins (Rosie and Mollie Kmita) telling us that they were going to move to Brighton to go to university - they were very upset and we all were hugging them. I barely spoke English so didn't know what was going on but gave them both a hug anyway as I could clearly see they were sad!”
15 - What position did you play in your first game?
Lucia: “I played on the wing I remember. I love playing in attack and doing anything I can to help the team succeed.”
16 - Are you still in touch with your school friends?
Lucia: “Yes! I am still in touch with a few of my primary school friends and always try to meet up with them when I go back to Madrid.”
17 - Would you rather be able to go back into the past or see into the future?
Lucia: “The future will always come at some point, the past won’t, so if I could re-visit some moments from my past then I 100 per cent would!”
18 - What are you listening to now?
Lucia: “Mainly Spanish music - Ozuna, Maluma and Bad Bunny.”
