Over the past ten years I have had the great opportunity and the honor of coaching the best female athlete the Basque Country has ever produced. And I say the great opportunity because she was at first a not yet developed triathlete full of potential, but in addition to the necessary natural gifts, she also had an unequalled work ethic. When these two qualities meet in a single athlete, the possibilities of achieving great results multiply, and that was also the case this time: in adition to her 7th place at the 2012 London Olympic Games and her silver medal at the European Championships, she has finished in the top ten of 43 official international races over the years we have worked together. The number of victories and podium finishes at lower level events is of course almost countless.
