My name is Juaisca Rodriguez, I’m a paratriathlete. Eighteen years later, after a double amputation, I returned back to swim in 2013. Ten months later I participated in my first international race: First Para South American Games Santiago 2014, in Chile. Next year, in 2015, I participated in ParaPaAmerican Games Toronto 2015, in Canada, where I broke a ParaPanAm record in the 50 butterfly. In 2016, I participated in several international competitions representing Venezuela in: ADEMI Tenerife 2016, winning the trophy as the best swimmer in the category S7; Catalunya Natació Adaptada Open, Barcelona, Spain; Copa Caixa Test Rio 2016, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. For the Paralympics Games in Rio, I reached six marks in: 50 butterfly, 50 freestyle, 100 breaststroke, 100 freestyle, 100 backstroke, and the 200 IM.
Looking forward to new possibilities and seeking to improve training conditions to achieve my goals, I decided to stay in the USA in 2017. Now I’m training for Triathlon in El Paso, Tx, USA. I have competed in Eagle in the Sun Triathlon, 2017 and Mighty Mujer 2018/2019. Recently I raced in Paratriathlon National Championships 2019, Los Angeles, CA, where I got 2nd place overall in PC Open Category (Paratriathlon Challenged Open).
For 2020 there are important races in both national and international Level in Paratriathlon: 2019 Sarasota-Bradenton CAMTRI Paratriathlon American Championships and Paratriathlon National Championship 2020, LA. This races will allow me to gain position in the national ranking in order to be able to compete internationally. For his races I'm looking for sponsor to cover fees due to registration, flights and accommodation.
