Lorenzo J is now at level 4 on Tribesports
I started swimming when I was 9 years old at Italia 500 clubhouse, Las Pinas, Philippines. After six months I was recruited to be part of their swimming team named "Tiger Sharks".
My first competition was way back in 2000 at the MILO Summer Meet Olympics where I won my first Bronze Medal for 50m Breastroke. I had a heart-crushing loss though on my 50m Butterfly, placing only 4th among 60 rookie swimmers.
I had a 1 year hiatus in swimming after being struck with 2 deadly water-borne diseases. After which, I joined our highschool varsity team and competed in our annual intramurals for 4 years and in 1 inter-school competition. I won 2 Gold, 4 Silver and 2 Bronze medals from the annual intramurals.
Sadly, I stopped swimming during college in order to focus on my studies. My form of exercise at that time was strength and core fitness training at our university gym.
When I started working in 2009, I decided to go back to swimming.
Since then, I have improved my freestyle and tailor-fitted my pace for long-distance swims. Now, I am perfecting my backstroke and butterfly in order to strengthen my upper body.
My goal now is to be a triathlete, seeing swimming as my starting point.
