Other information
FOOTBALL TO SHOOTING
He played football as a goalkeeper at a young age, and was selected for a Colombian youth national team. However, his father discouraged him from playing football, and he gave up the sport. "Football was my great passion and motivation. It was hard to leave it, but now I understand that it was not for me, because not all footballers are lucky enough to achieve the ultimate dream of making it as a professional."
