Also note the third place in the Ironman of Wales or the 6º position achieved in the 70.3 of Cascais.

This year, 2018 have also opened new doors and objectives such as being able to be in Olympic Games, Tokyo 2020, and doing it accompanying as a guide the Hector Catalá paratriathlete, a combination that has already paid off with an 3º placed in the World Cup in Australia.

Now is the time to rest, plan and regain strength for the 2019 season, which will be tough, demanding and the time to reach the dreams pursued.

Finally, thanks to sponsors, collaborators and human and sports team that help us to be a little closer to #proyectokona19. "
