Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He began swimming at age two.
Why this sport?
He liked the individual aspect of the sport. "It's only you, with the only exception of the relays. But the victories are the fruit of your own work and defeats are caused by your own mistakes. I love focusing on myself, either on my body or on my mind, and I accept my victories and my defeats. It's learning, making mistakes, and then trying again and improving."
