“With these awards yesterday I achieved my tenth world title. Just chacha champions. Just bachata champions. 3 dance challenge champions – salsa / chacha and bachata. Next to my wonderful partner Franklin Liranzo️, with whom I have extraordinary chemistry because, though lately, we have been seeing each other only once a year, we somehow managed to stay connected,” Jiménez wrote on his Facebook account.

Lucia added that although many times the achievements seem somewhat easy, the road that traveled is quite difficult and many sacrifices are made that few see.

“Every achievement can be seen easily, but it is definitely a long road that brings a lot of travel. It is the result of years of training, effort, perseverance, and dedication. With many ups and downs, but with clear objectives and full of passion. Gratitude and desire to continue growing,’’ said Lucia.
