Bio

"On the mountain, you set the limit"

 

I am Nico Molina, I am 19 years old and I live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in a town called Dúrcal. From a young age I have liked all kinds of sports in which I have always liked to give my best. With 10 years I had my first steps through the high peaks of Sierra Nevada, although at that time I played football and practiced BMX, at 14 I started running for the first time and I realized from the first moment that it was a world that I was passionate about, since my beginnings I started training every day because I loved spending hours in the mountains and little by little I got hooked to make this a way of life, first I spent the whole year running and since I was 16 when I had my first junior world gold, since that year I spent the winter on skis, that let me know something new that I love as much as when I met the mountain. Currently I spend the winter in Sierra Nevada adding hours of skimo and combining it studying degree of physical-sports activities. My family, technification centers, coach, friends, my club Cerro del Caballo and La Sportiva allow me to dream every day doing what I like.
