Virginia Berasategui Luna
About Virginia: Virginia said she feels professional since she started with triathlon in 1991, but she has been what is “considered” professional since 1996. Before, she was a swimmer and runner at school. When Virginia was 12 she asked for a racing bike for her birthdayt. She loved to swim, bike and run before doing it all together! When not training or racing, she loves going to cinema,and concerts. She loves music, and meet my friends to have a beerâ.
