Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She took up the sport at age six.
Why this sport?
She was inspired to take up the sport after watching it on television. "My parents wanted me to learn how to swim and took me to the pool. I preferred to practise this sport [artistic swimming] when I was in the pool."

RETIREMENT
In December 2019 she announced her retirement from competitive artistic swimming via social media. "I want to tell everyone that I have decided to change my projects and goals, leaving high performance sports aside. This decision was motivated by the fact that I was informed that I would not be part of the Spanish Olympic synchronised swimming team in Tokyo 2020. Therefore, after so many years focused on achieving that goal, my presence in the High Performance Centre [CAR] of Sant Cugat stopped making sense. It has been a difficult decision to make, but I consider that it is the best one for my future since unfortunately, making a living from sport is very complicated and joining the working life is an inevitable reality. Despite everything, I am satisfied. I have found new sources of motivation, and I am eager to face other challenges." (Facebook profile, 29 Dec 2020; Instagram profile, 30 Oct 2020)
