I’m from Peru and a sports fanatic. I’m a experienced table tennis coach and also have been in charge of management functions in sports organizations. I strongly believe Creating Champions Peru builds both, great athletes and good persons.

Lots of people ask me how I came up with the idea of Creating Champions Peru. Therefore, I will tell you my short story:

When I was young, I never had a trainer. I never had good equipment. I never had any idea about professional table tennis.

With 16 years old I met some other table tennis players at my high school. I was shocked! These 9 year old kids could play far better than I. It was the first time I learned something about professional techniques, professional equipment and a professional league. At that point, I thought about how good I could have been if I had had professional training.



Four years later, already going to the university, I met the one who will become one of my best friends. We shared the same passion: Table tennis. And we decided to improve our passion.

We started to watch table tennis videos from which we learned the basic techniques. That was our way to learn to play table tennis without trainer and just by ourselves. In spite of all of that, we never lost the pleasure of playing and we are still playing and, when possible, taking part in competitions.

I don’t want more children to experience what I did. Therefore, in 2015 I founded an organization to give them the opportunity to have sports programs with a real professional trainer! This training is absolutely for free because of the fact that many families cannot afford it.

At the moment, we do not know whether they will become champions or not, but we are working hard on it. We want to support children’s sport talents to make a social impact. And, in the end, every intern, thesis candidate or volunteer will be part of their success!
