Luciana AYMAR

Country:          Argentina
Date of Birth: 10 August 1977
Gender:           Female
Height:            173 cm
Weight:           60 kg
Position:         Midfielder

A brilliant, attacking midfielder for Argentina since her international debut against the Netherlands in the 1998 World Cup, Luciana Aymar claimed an incredible fourth FIH 'Player of the Year' award in 2007 having previously won the coveted prize in 2001, 2004 and 2005.

She lists Diego Maradona as an idol, but her pace, vision and superb ball control on the hockey pitch have led to her being universally acknowledged as 'La Maga' (the magician).

Aymar's lists of trophy wins with Las Leonas is impressive - three consecutive Pan American Games titles, the 2001 Champions Trophy and the 2002 World Cup as well as an Olympic silver in 2000 and Champions Trophy runners-up medals in 2002 and 2007.

She has also played club hockey for Rot-Weiss Köln in Germany and Real Club de Polo in Barcelona, Spain.
