Therefore, described his stay in London 2012 as "an unforgettable experience and hopefully in the Olympics in Brazil (Rio 2016) comes to stay in a good position and get something," he said.
It attracts idea of competing in Europe
Asked about the interview to be this Friday in London with Spanish businessman Juan Pineda, to promote its presence in races in Europe, Quinonez was in favor of participating in that option.
"In South America there are competitors but to keep up with all you have to seek outside expertise," he said. The "accept" because "many people would come close to another level and you will assimilate all that."
Given the track starting to open up opportunities for him, Quinonez is preparing to start a new career, which is sure to surprise even to Ecuador and Esmeraldas province, so we asked his countrymen to "go ahead, this is just the beginning. In Brazil may have more emotions in this "competition concluded with a smile.
