Brief Presentation

.

Sport has always been a part of my life, practicing both competitive (trampolines and climbing) and non competitive sports (swimming, karate, MTB, running, surf, etc.). I have started climbing in 1999 and competing at national level in 2000. In my 2nd climbing year I have reached the 8a milestone. In 2007 I have been selected to join the climbing national team and competed in the 2007 world championship in Avilés. Though I practice the various climbing disciplines at a fairly good level my main focus currently lies in sport climbing.
