sport: Triathlon

Hello, my name is Jorge Vargas, I have always had a big passion about sports in general. I grew up playing soccer, and my father was a professional soccer player, and always encouraged me to be active no matter what your goals are, or what you do. I played soccer my whole life from elementary to college, and I participated in national tournaments once and a while. In 2005 I decided to take on something else besides soccer, and I always liked cycling as a second choice, but a friend of mine introduced me to triathlons. I gave triathlons a shot, once I competed in the first one (it was an Olympic distance, and I got 2nd overall), then I never looked back, and that is pretty much what I do in my free time. Swim, bike, and run. And thank you to this sport, my lifestyle has changed completely, and have met such wonderful people on the process.

accomplishments:
