A pride for the sport of Ensenada, Baja California and Mexico is Daniel Corral Barron, who at only 22 has one of the most wanted achievement for any high performance athlete, the classification of the Olympic Games.
The athlete won one of his greatest dreams and became the first gymnast in over fifteen years to get your ticket to the Olympics.

Yet a state and a country on the lookout for his performance in London in 2012, Corral says makes no promises as to results, but emphasized that goes with the aim of improving their performances all previous powers and trusts that have what it takes to have a historical performance for Mexico.
"You work to overcome their same brands, that's what we're focusing, and the end results or will on their own but you have to focus on overcoming their own brands, their own scores, climbing brands, up routines , risking everything, that's how I see that you can reach the Olympic finals, including an Olympic medal.

"
Corral Barron did not focus on their preparation as a result of which got its ticket to London, explains that the process dates from years ago and that the ticket is the result of a long work.

"
Daniel began his walk in the gym since I was a small, three years and recalled that it was thanks to his mother, who, looking for his little spend their energy on an activity, chose to take Gymnastics Club Ensenada.

"It was always the gym, from tiny sport was always interested me, even I played with my companions, at recess, all sports, basketball, football, baseball, volleyball, all I had to play but was more than no recreation, as was always competitive stage gymnastics that caught my attention. "
