HOOKED FROM DAY ONE

When I was 19 years old, I met a player from the Bilbao team and he invited me to try it out. I got hooked from day one and I still am. I've always liked all sports and practiced many of them, but as soon as I got to know about wheelchair basketball, I knew that this was the sport for me. It's a very fast and spectacular sport with lots of contact. Plus I've always preferred team to individual sports.

Basketball has been my way of life for 18 years. I dedicate most of my time to sports and thanks to them, I met who is my wife now. My day to day revolves around sport, and I hope it remains that way for many years.

AFTER MANY INTERVENTIONS

In 1994, I had a train accident, so I had several sequelae in the lower extremities. After many interventions and spending two years in a wheelchair and doing rehabilitation, I managed to walk again. Nowadays, except for long distances or trips, I do not use a wheelchair every day.

"The lightweight design and how it transmits movements make my body and the chair become one."

"I just love my RGK Elite wheelchair. I like how lightweight it is - but most important to me is its level of traction when I'm on the court."

"My RGK Tiga meets my needs perfectly and its customised design makes it unique. Being particularly ergonomic and lightweight, riding it is very comfortable. "
