Tell us some curious anecdote that happened to you this year: In airports we have many anecdotes ... Hahaha! It is complicated to travel with a lot of material and suitcases. This year, with Tamara (Gómez) and Pablo (Dapena) from Brisbane to Cape Town we were met by a woman at the check-in desk who was Miss Rotennmeyer herself and we carried one more suitcase each. In the end Pablo had to hide behind the counters to keep clothes that we had supposedly thrown away, I had to steal two luggage tags from the woman on the table while she was taking care of us and Tamara was about to give us the plan to lose because when she gets nervous she starts laughing uncontrollably and almost realizes the woman and leaves us on the ground. It was a rush! LOL. Another was when I met this summer the "Membrillo", a pupilo of Pablo who had in the jersey pockets full of cookies and quince snacks to feed four families haha! There were many laughs ...
A friend in triathlon: I could not highlight one. I have a great time in my day to day, on trips, with my training partners, etc. I am lucky to have met very good people in triathlon.
Preferred Rival (With whom you most like to compete): The truth is that I have no preferred rival. I love competing against the best and any triathlete that forces me to demand to try to win makes me enjoy.
Objectives for the 2016 season: The Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games and the World Championship (WTS).
Tips to improve swimming: I think it's a discipline where technique is a very important factor. We must pay attention and be aware of the movements of our body. Any work that helps us in this will be good, either in or out of the water. With continuity and without obsession, it is sure to be improved.
Tips to improve cycling: Combining the road bike with the MTB and the cyclocross is a very entertaining and unconscious way of gaining technique, agility and strength on both wheels. It's something I've been doing since I started in this sport and that I see very positive.
Tips to improve the race on foot: I do not think there is any secret. Do everything in our power to have continuity, strengthen much used muscles and work to have an ankle as reactive as possible. Also, seeing us on video, helps us find technical failures that could injure us.
Triathlon that you have not been able to run yet and would like to participate sometime: There are many! haha The JJOO, Laguna Phuket Triathlon, Escape from Alcatraz, Alpe D'Huez, Xterra from Maui, Ironman from Hawaii ...
