Alexander Martinez

Track & Field

"Children only develop properly when they can play. Children are our future and it is important to start there and to engage them through play and sport. In this way they and their communities can be sustainably strengthened and peace promoted."

Alexander Martinez is a former Swiss triple jumper of Cuban origin. After his retirement, the athlete opened a studio in which he offers dance courses, photography courses and personal training. Since 2007, the passionate salsa dancer has been an athlete ambassador for Right To Play. In addition to a field trip in 2014 to a Right To Play project in Tanzania, he regularly supports us on various occasions and helps us to bring our message to a wider audience.
