Best places to train and compete
More than a place, it is definitely in a good day with some sun wherever it is, road or track: a sunny day can make a hard training so much better! To race, there's something special about the Berlin Marathon, with all the people in the streets cheering on us. The world championships are of course another nice race to compete in.
In races it definitely is « The one than doubts losses ». I learnt it from my dad and it reminds me that the right choices can make or brake your race.
Best results over the years
2nd in the marathon at the worlds in the Junior category in 2012.
In 2015 I won the 10k points race in the Panamerican Games in Canada: for a Senior, it is the biggest race in the Olympic calendar in which Mexico takes part of.
3rd at the World Inline Cup stage in Rennes in 2016.
3rd in the points race at the World Games in 2017. This is a competition that comes back every 4 years and we can say they are our Olympics Games
