- What is your biggest challenge, and what do you do to manage this challenge?
Weight lifting is a big challenge for me because every day I use to lift heavy weights and that requires focus during the whole training. Also, it is a big challenge the hammer throw technique because it is really complex and requires a lot of years to improve it.
I usually eat different kinds of meat, like steaks, chicken, fish, etc. Also, a lot of vegetables and fruits, drink water every day and also I drink protein supplements to help the muscle growth.
- Do you have a saying or motto that you live your life by?
It is important to know that even if I have a really hard practice or a hard day, I don’t have to give up. Determination is the key of success and if someone wants to succeed that person needs to pass from a kind of pain to achieve the ultimate goal.
- Why he decided to come to United states to play hammer throw?
I came to the U.S. because the throwing coach of Arkansas State University’s track and field team offered me a full scholarship to be able to study a degree and also, training to get a better athlete.
- What is difference between American university and Spain’s university?
The biggest difference is that American universities are much bigger than the Spanish universities because American colleges have really big campus. Also, in Spain the universities are much cheaper than in America; 6 years ago before the economic crises in Spain the public universities were free.
The facilities in America are much better and it is easier to train and study at the same time, but in Spain if you are in a university it is really hard to train because the time of the classes are longer and also, the facilities are far from the university.
Practice the technique every day
