Interesting Facts

Biggest accomplishment on and off the court:

On court, every single championship that I have been at. Off court, having made such great friends from my team (including coaches) and from the rival teams.

Favourite Basketball memory:

In the final four of 2019 we had to win by more than 23 to the second best team of the league. We knew it was going to be difficult but we gave everything we had on the court and we ended up winning by more than necessary. By winning that match we would always have won the league, so it meant too much for us.

Who would be your four dream dinner guests?

  • My best friend
    We always help each other when we need it, and I really appreciate it.
  • Sergio Llull
    He has always been one of my favourites basketball players. He was an important inspiration for me when I went through the same injury that he had.
  • Walter Lewin
    I got into Physics through his books and lectures. Knowing him and having the chance to talk with him would be one of my biggest dreams.
  • My Parents
    They have always support me in everything I’ve wanted to do, they are the most important people in my life, so for sure they would be in my dream dinner.
