At the age of six I started swimming with the local club. A year later I entered my first swimming competitions. I soon realised this wasn’t really something for me and I introduced some weekly runs into my schedule. I truly enjoyed running and its greater variation.
Not much later when I was about thirteen I started participating in swim-run races and joined the local triathlon squad named ‘Sp&O’. The purchase of a entry-level race bike quickly followed in the next year. In 2010, inevitably, I completed my first triathlon.
From then on, I’ve been training for the triathlon, which I believe is one of the most complete sports in the world.
