Jose Miguel "Momo" Castillo Jara

 los angeles, chile

My name is José Miguel “Momo” Castillo Jara, I am 30 years of age and come from the city of Los Angeles, Chile.

After many years of practicing different sports I came to know extreme Kayaking. From that moment on I realized that this sport was the one that fitted my personality and lifestyle the best. It allows me to translate all my abilities and love of adrenaline to the limit, and permits me to be constantly trying to better myself, and facing and challenging nature. This sport has become my work and it has given me the opportunity of traveling and moving around without abandoning my passion.

In the year 2010, I began competing in kayaking events in Chile and abroad. My good performances have led me to become the second best kayaker in my country. My enthusiasm, skills and dedication have allowed me to, in a very short period of time, reach an elite level in both an international and national level, being acknowledged by my peers.

My plans for 2013 consist of participating in the greatest number of International and national competitions. To achieve this, I intend to travel to Europe between the months of May and October, when and where most of these competitions take place.
