Places of interest

In addition to my regular sports training, I follow the news of most sports and place non-GC bets on my free time. This allows me to have additional skills in statistics and to exchange with other enthusiasts.

As a football coach, I believe I have a responsibility to set an example and stay in excellent physical health for the benefit of the players. This is why I frequently participate in marathons, and I am currently training to participate in my very first triathlon.
