I have always been good at sports but I began swimming at the age of fourteen in a club in the neighbourhood of Muñiz, where I had a very good performance and I was even offered to take on the lifeguarding course to work in Brazilian beaches. However, this was not possible, since I started working and dating with my present wife, then I got married and gave up swimming to devote my free time to my three daughters. Already a grown-up in his mid thirties, I took up swimming again and participated in races in swimming-pools as a representative of SUTERH, achieving very good results.

In 2009, I began swimming in a group which was already taking part in open water swimming, and because of my competitive nature, I could not but follow them in this challenge. They have become my friends and we motivate among us to keep on participanting in these races - I have even gave up smoking to improve my performance!

Regarding my personal life, I am a building manager, I love my wife and adore my two grandchildren; I take singing lessons from time to time and I love going dancing with my wife.
