..is coming to its end. A year that has been good in so many ways, but yet so strange. Its been a brilliant sports year and i have achieved outstanding results, but i have put all the results in perspective when i think back over the year.


Gone too soon, Its been a year of loss. Loss of good friends. In August my dear friend David lost his battle to Cancer. A month later my dear colleague Jorge lost his battle. As Im writing this my best friend Sara´s boyfriend, Andreas is battling a sever liver cancer…


Sara and Andreas have been visiting me the past summers. They have been by my side, supporting me achieving my best sports results. They were in Lisbon this summer when i won my double European Gold medals. It was very special sharing that moment with them. But yet those achievments feels so small when i compare them to the battle of life…

2016 has been good in many ways, but yet so strange…

I dont know what 2017 will bring,  we shall see…



Stromp 2016

2016 was in fact a fantastic sports year for me and it was a big honor to receive my 3rd Stromp last Friday at the Sheraton Hotel in Lisbon.



With my friends Carolina and Rita at the party

The Stromp award is considered as the “Oscars” of Sporting.  I got the first back in 2011 when i won a silver medal at the European AG Championship in Spain, in 2014 after the Gold in Austria and this year as a recognition for my 2 gold medals in Lisbon.


My 3 Stromp Awards

Thank you Sporting Clube de Portugal
