Bio

"You don't have to think about building the tallest wall or the best wall, you have to think about I'm going to put this brick in a more perfect way as you can put it. And you do it every day and there you have the wall."

Will Smith

I was born in Mallorca and ever since I was a child, I’ve been passionate about everything that involved movement. Thanks to the education I received from my parents, I have practiced all kinds of sports, just for fun, mainly dance as well as soccer, tennis and swimming. At 19 years of age, I started with the Balearic Cup of mountain racing and advancing to mountain disciplines, and then in the 2012-2013 season I also started mountain skiing. In winter 2014-2015 I moved to Font Romeu, to reside and train hard. My dedication is almost exclusive, which is strongly reflected in my evolution as an athlete, getting my best results to date in absolute category. The following years I’ve continued to train hard, but without luck smiling at me, I’ve accumulated a few seasons with small injuries. This year 2019, I have looked at the horizon and I am still looking forward to it, enjoying the environment that I like, nature and its mountains, moving light and agile within it. I want to continue competing and surpassing myself every day, facing adventures and challenges – both sporting and personal, in short ... to keep living and keep dreaming!
