David Cantero, from Aldaia (Valencia), started triathlon when he was only 9 years old, and at 12 he entered the Sports Technification Center of Cheste, where he has resided for the last six years. He was proclaimed Spanish U18 champion in 2019, and a year later he joined the group of triathletes from the University of Alicante led by the prestigious coach Roberto Cejuela, with Fernando Alarza, Roberto Sánchez Mantecón or Lasse Lührs as teammates.

In 2020 he began to compete in some athletics races, signing for the Valencian club Cárnicas Serrano, and just a year later he was Spanish U20 cross country runner-up, in his first year in the category, and achieved his first great international success: the silver medal at the European U20s Championship in 5000 meters. Later, in addition, he achieved the victories at the European Triathlon Junior Cups in Riga and Banyoles.

For now, he will continue combining the preparation of the main international triathlon events with middle and long distance race events due to the success achieved to date in both modalities.
