Four years later he attended the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games, where the triple jump was confirmed to be his best discipline, to the detriment of the 200 m sprint. This change was providential, because it enabled him to hang his first Paralympic medal, a bronze, with his eyes on the track at that time, his guide Raul Sabaté. In London 2012 he completed his third consecutive Games, participating in four disciplines and getting together with his current guide Enric Martín, two fifth places in the final triple jump (12,19m) and length (6,08m) as best records, and an eleventh place in the 100m which is his best so far (11,79s) and a record of Spain in the semifinals of the 4x100m relay with a time of 43,26s.

In his sixth appearance in a European Championships, Swansea (Wales 2014), he returns to the podium getting his ninth continental medal, bronze in the long jump with a mark of 5,93m which puts the icing on the cake of a great 2014 when he wins back the crown of Spain as a champion in the 100 meter sprint in 2012 and becomes a national runner-up in the long jump.
