She began practicing gymnastics at age 6. She joined the Spanish national team in 1994, when she was 14 years old.
In May 1994, at the age of 13, she took part in the first international competition, in which she received three medals (one gold medal and two bronze medals). In November of the same year, she was asked by Emilia Boneva to start being part of the Spanish national individual team in Madrid, where she trained an average of 8 hours a day in the gym Gimnasio Moscardó.
At the 1995 Spanish Individual Championships, Almudena took the lead at a national level for the first time. In June 1995 she got the 12th position at the Final European Cup in Telford (England).
In 1996, she went to her first Olympic Games in Atlanta, where she participated for the individual team, along with her colleague Alba Caride. She achieved the fifth position in the preliminary round and the ninth position in the semi-final. Finally, she got the ninth position in the Olympics final, being the youngest participant in the competition.
In 2004, the Spanish Gymnastics Federation decided that Almudena Cid and Jennifer Colino had to compete against each other in order to choose who would represent Spain at the 2004 Athens Olympics. The competition was at a very high level - nearly at Olympic level - causing mental and physical weariness and increasing the risk of injury before the Olympic Games. After obtaining the best marks, Almudena went to the 2004 Athens Olympics.
In 2007, Christian Gálvez met Cid in Pasapalabra, they dated for three years and were married on 7 August 2010 in Torrelodones, Madrid, by the mayor of Móstoles.
On 23 August 2008, she put an end to her sporting career. It coincided with the very last day of the Olympics finals in Beijing, in which she got the eighth position, along with the Olympic diploma. Her last exercise was with ribbon, accompanied by an adaptation of “Nessun dorma”, which is an aria by Giacomo Puccini. As a final gesture as a gymnast, she drew the shape of a heart on the mat and she kissed it.
Almudena married Christian Galvez in 2010.
Currently, Almudena Cid Tostado is 42 years, 7 months and 14 days old. Almudena Cid Tostado will celebrate 43rd birthday on a Thursday 15th of June 2023. Below we countdown to Almudena Cid Tostado upcoming birthday.
