Of David Bustamante, his personal trainer says that «It shows that he has done sports for a long time when it comes to taking the technique», but acknowledges that «being a smoker costs the bottom something more». This is a detail that brings David Bustamante closer to many people who go to the gym routinely and constantly but who are unable to quit smoking.
