English Version

“At the age of 14, Julio began playing soccer with the team called Argentina Junior. At 16, he played in Hilversum, and at the age of 17, he became a member of the Curaçao Football Association as part of the Volharding club, which played in the A-class.

 At the same age of 17, Julio started practicing athletics and boxing in Villa Maria, and he also played baseball in Deportivo Venezuela.

 In 1938, at the age of 17, Julio had his first boxing match in the heavyweight category, weighing 184 pounds, and lost by knockout in the 4th round to an opponent who weighed 234 pounds. Two months later, in a rematch, Julio won in the 3rd round. All of Julio’s other fights were exhibitions as there were only a few opponents in this weight class in Curaçao.

 On the football field, Julio continued to develop his talents, and in 1940 and 1941, he participated in the selection of the Curaçao Football Association. Meanwhile, his performance in athletics was very successful, with Julio setting records in Shot Put, Discus Throw, Javelin Throw, High Jump, and Pentathlon in one season.

 In 1944, Julio was part of a delegation that traveled to Caracas and participated in some athletics events. There, Julio broke two of his records in shot put and high jump.

 In 1946, Julio traveled to the Netherlands to participate in the Dutch Athletics Championship. Before the championship, Julio participated in various boxing tournaments in different cities such as The Hague, Dordrecht, Rotterdam, Leiden, and Hoorn. While he had success in the boxing tournaments, facing the top athletes of the Netherlands in official competitions was a different challenge.

 In 1946, Julio participated in the Central American and Caribbean Games held in Barranquilla, Colombia, where he achieved a 6th place in the javelin throw. In the final stages of his successful career as an athlete in athletics, baseball, soccer, and boxing, Julio also began working as a manager in various capacities, including technical, administrative, and as an umpire in baseball and as a referee in professional boxing.

 Julio traveled on several occasions as a manager with different selections and visited various countries in our region. In the final stages of his career as a baseball manager, Julio served as the manager of Santa Rosa Indians and the baseball selection of Curaçao.

 Currently, Julio is participating in the sport of dominoes in the Curaçao federation as one of the best, both nationally and internationally. Julio is the president of the Los Veterano domino club, the president of the Antillean domino federation, and a member of the board of the international domino federation.
