Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up athletics in 2016 at the Association of Blind Athletes in Peru. In 2019 he began training professionally.
Why this sport?
He felt the need to practise sports after losing his sight. He initially took up five-a-side football before switching to athletics after experiencing injury problems. "I've always liked to run and play football. The physiotherapists gave me a choice between only running or only kicking the ball, I couldn't do both. I felt that I had more opportunities with running. Taking up athletics was a difficult decision. It was not my goal, but somehow I began to improve my personal bests and just went forward."
