Notes from the field

I started playing hockey when I was 5 years old because my father was a hockey player. I have played most of my career at Real Club de Polo de Barcelona, winning 4 Spanish League titles in 2013, ’14, ’15 and ’18. My international debut was in 2003 in Hamburg against Germany and I have represented Spain 272 times since, reaching 4 x Olympic Games and may more tournaments along the way. Outside of hockey I have a degree in Journalism and a master’s degree in Sports Management; I’m very involved in the sports industry. I love to travel when I am not playing hockey.

David's Ritual

My pre-game Ritual involves getting some touches on the ball before we begin the warm up.
