Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Eldric used to live with his parents, older brother and younger sister in the popular “23 de Enero” neighbourhood. He finished school but decided not to go to university in order to focus on his boxing career, which allowed him to secure a place on the national team. Despite the fact he did not continue with his studies, he considers himself as a person who is passionate about knowledge and always tries to keep learning.

The uncertainty of the life that he and his family lived in Venezuela, the increase in violence and the humanitarian crisis made him and his girlfriend leave the country to find a safer place to live, first in Trinidad and Tobago and then Uruguay. He has been joined by his father, who is his coach, and he is training with full dedication and commitment to his dream: aiming for an Olympic medal.

Eldric competed in the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 as a member of the IOC Refugee Olympic Team.
