BIOGRAPHY

Daughter of flying parents, my paragliding birthplace was Algodonales. When I had only been flying for a few months, I participated in my first national competition and then many more followed: the Spanish Championships and the Andalusian and Catalan paragliding leagues.

Weekend flyer (at the moment), I have the ambition to break the Spanish distance record. The Junta de Andalucía recognised me a high performance athlete in 2019 and 2020 and I am pursuing a theoretical physics career. My mind is set to continue progressing and learning in this incredible sport.

I wanted to be an astronaut

Since I was 4 years old I wanted to be an astronaut, but I think I'll stick with paragliding and theoretical physics.

The passion for flying

Because my parents flew when I was little, paragliding seemed boring to me. It was only when I saw the Rodríguez brothers at the free flight festival at El Yelmo that I developed the passion for flying. Their maneuvers were certainly better than riding the roller coaster at the amusement park.

We were called the Gin Tonic family

My father flew a Gin glider and my mother a Windtech Tonic.

Niviuk

Now the three of us fly Niviuk because safety is the most important thing to us.
