Hailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina, the 36 year old is famous for quoting the proverb "el cielo es el limite" - the sky is the limit.

Currently co-owner and captain of the team BlackWatch, Figueras maintains that despite his success in modeling, polo is his first and greatest passion. Always trying to raise the profile of the sport, he claims his mission is to "bring polo to the world a little more".
