My name is Rafael and I am a student at the Rotterdam School of Management. I have been a passionate athlete since I was very young. In 2007 I started running, first on the track and later in longer distance races and ultimately to triathlon in 2016 when I competed in my first triathlon in Rotterdam. I am also still actively competing in running races. Since my background is running, I joined the JoyMiTri team to improve my swimming and cycling skills.
It is my dream to one day qualify for the Ironman world championships in Hawaii.
