Marta Mangué González (born 23 April 1983) is a Spanish handballer for Brest Bretagne Handball and the Spanish national team.

She was part of the Spanish team that won the bronze medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics.[1] [2]

Previously, Mangué played for RK Zaječar, however, due to financial reasons the Serbian club let her go in mid-December 2012.[3]

Mangué competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, where the Spanish team reached the quarter finals, and finished 6th in the tournament.[4]

She won a gold medal with the Spanish team at the 2005 Mediterranean Games in Almería.

Mangué played at the 2008 European Women's Handball Championship in Macedonia, where the Spanish team defeated Germany in the semifinal,[5] and received silver medals after losing the final. Mangué ended up among the top ten goalscorers at the tournament.

At the 2011 World Championships, Mangué was part of the first Spanish women's team to win a medal at world level.[6] Spain followed this up with an Olympic bronze in 2012 and a European silver in 2014.

Personal life[edit]

Mangué is bisexual.[7] In September 2016, she became a mother after her partner gave birth to a child.[8]
