An outstanding player at a national level already in his youth, Javier was absolute champion of Spain in 1973, at just 20 years old, and made his debut a year later with the Spanish team at the Nice Olympiad. He was one of the mainstays of Spanish chess in the 70s, playing five Olympics: Nice 74, Haifa 76; Buenos Aires 78, Malta 80, and Luzerna 82. Already in more recent times. He lived for many years in Bogotá where he participated in different activities to promote school chess.>
