MOVE TO RIO
In 2019 he decided to relocate to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to start working with coach Fernando Possenti. "I came here in 2019, it was a decision made only by myself. I came to train here at the training centre of the Brazilian team, which is not a club but a national institution. Fernando is a coach who focuses only on open water swimming. He studies and travels all around the world, that's why he has good results. For me it's an amazing experience and I have enjoyed it so far. That's why I'm still here."
