Dedicated to the first women who won Olympic medals for Spain in team sports (handball, hockey and water polo). A very special seal.
This seal, in foil, collects details of three types of balls or balls, the handball in bronze, basketball in silver and gold the hockey. In this way we pay tribute to the first women who won the first Olympic medals by teams, in those sports as well as in water polo.
The first team to win an Olympic medal was field hockey at the Barcelona '92 Games. If getting a gold is a great source of pride, doing it in your country, in such long-awaited games as those in Barcelona, is much more special if possible.
On August 7, 1992, the Tarrasa hockey stadium enthusiastically celebrated the first Olympic gold of a Spanish women's team.
In London 2012 and Rio de Janeiro 2016, two other Spanish women's teams would get, in this case, the second place on the podium.

What is a block sheet, and how is it different from a normal seal?
Taking into account that the normal seal has only the surface occupied by the seal, the block sheet is an illustrated surface where one or more seals can appear, so its dimension will be larger, occupying that of the seal and the rest of the sheet and, their sizes and shapes can be very varied.
A curious fact that also differentiates the seal and the block sheet, is that in the first one live characters cannot appear, but in the environment of the seal in the block sheet yes.
