Triathlon as a way of life

“I was born in Vitoria-Gasteiz 43 years ago.

Since I can remember, I have practiced all kinds of sports such as Basque pelota, swimming, judo, climbing and mountaineering, but it was not until 1992 that I started to practice duathlon. One year later I competed in the Basque duathlon and triathlon circuit and two years later, in the junior category, I managed to win the Spanish Olympic distance triathlon championship and was able to participate in some World Cup events (10th place in Gerardmer). That is when I decided to dedicate myself professionally to triathlon.

In the year 2000 I fulfilled my great dream, to be an Olympic athlete and participate in the Olympic Games of Sydney 2000. I repeated the experience four years later in the Olympic Games of Athens after having achieved a place by being runner-up in Europe in Valencia.

After Athens, in 2005, I decided to make the leap to a discipline as exciting as it is hard, the Ironman. Despite suffering in my first tests, over the years this speciality has given me great results”.
