He plays for the Spanish national wheelchair handball team, that recently won the Bronze medal at the EURO Hand 4 All and is looking forward to the Wheelchair Handball World Championship, that will begin in Portugal next November 15. As for basketball, he’s been playing for several years in the wheelchair basketball first division for the Club Deportivo Villa de Leganés.
