Galician National coach (2021)
At the age of 9, I was captured by squash and it has never let me escape since. The following year I got to be the first Galician to win a Spanish Championship, in the U10 category. At 14, I became Galician Champion and having to face the elders, the preparation started to be different. I always enjoyed training and the harder the training, the better.
At the age of 16 I made my debut with the Spanish National Team and reached the final of the British Open Under 17. Traveling alone to that tournament made me mature a lot. When I came of age, I was convinced I wanted to be a professional squash player, or at least, try becoming one; so, I went to live in England alongside John Milton. Within a year I already knew what it took to succeed: train every day to the limit, follow John’s advice and compete without being afraid of anything or anyone.
Ambition and humility had to coexist.
In 2002 I got my professional license from the PSA (Professional Squash Association). I also took the opportunity to study Journalism so, in case I wasn’t able to make a living out of squash, I was still able to dedicate myself to something that I liked. After several years of preparation and many trips I achieved my first big milestone, to get among the 10 best players in the world (Sep2009). I was the first Spanish-speaking player to do it.
But just as life does, sport gives you good and not so good moments, and the same month I got my best ranking I was seriously injured: I torn my ACL. This me made me lose my ranking and
drop to the 106th position only 8 months after having reached my highest place.
But there was only one thought in my mind: keep overcoming barriers. So, I did it. In April 2014, I managed to rise to number 5 in the world ranking.
In all these years I have always been setting goals and enjoying the way to fulfill them. As an athlete, I am not afraid of missing or failing. The only thing I wouldn’t forgive myself for would be not giving 100%, that’s why I always prepare thoroughly and try to arrive in the best shape to all my competitions. After having won the championship of Spain and twice the European, I still have many goals, perhaps not of the same magnitude but just as exciting.
And one of those goals is the one that I present to you here: to be able to instill my work ethic and way to see the sport and the competition to the new generations. To be able to grow with them, guide them on this beautiful path, enjoy the good times with them and offer them a
hand in the not so good ones.
I’m waiting here for you, to be able to help you with all my energy to fulfill your dreams. Why?
Because there isn’t anything more interesting and motivating than this for me. That is why I am here, for YOU.
