BIOGRAPHY
l started to paddling in Segovia , city where l was born, In a summer camp, but no slalom, only kayaking. Next year, l tried white water and l liked so much, so l started to training, but after two weeks my coach stop to training so me and my partners learned kayak ourselves.  In 2011, my dream was go to Seu d'Urgell because l loved slalom and in my city we haven't a slalom course, only a little river that has water 1 month per year, and there aren't any slalom coach. So in 2011 i had a flat water coach so l training in Sprint, but l prefer Slalom, so after my trainings in Sprint, l took slalom boat and l training in two gates that i put in flatwater.  And in 2012 my dream became reality and l went to la Seu.
