It’s a family connection. My brother introduced me to paragliding, he was Spanish Champion in 1996 I joined him in the competition since I was a kid.
Paragliding has given me the best moments of my life. Inside competition, among all my achievements if I had to mention just one it would be the Superfinal 2013. I went there to enjoy the competition and two weeks later I achieved one of my main dream, becoming World Champion.

Even though the competitions are quite difficult and the level is extremely high I would love to win a World Cup, an European and the Superfinal again.
