Get to know Colombian midfielder Jimmy Medranda away from the field.
Outside of soccer, what do you like to do?
JM: I like to talk with my family and listen to music
What type of music?
JM: Salsa and vallenato. Vallenato is like a national symbol of Colombia and people on the coast listen to it the most. My favorite Vallenato artist is Diomedes Diaz and my favorite salsa artist is Julio Garcia.
If you were on a deserted island, what song would you bring with you?
JM: I would bring “volver a vivir” by Diomedes Diaz.
Other than the necessities, what would you take with you to a desert island?
JM: A soccer ball!
If all the Sporting KC team were on this island, who would die first and who would last the longest?
JM: Hmm I´m not sure. I would say that Jalil would last the longest because he is strong. I think Connor would go first just because he is young and hasn´t been on his own for very long.
Who is the best dancer on the team? You? I hear you like to dance.
JM: I am the worst dancer but I would say that Mateus, the fitness coach, dances very well.
If Peter Vermes were an animal, what animal would he be?
JM: Hmm I would say a dog because sometimes he is calm and at other times he is intense.
What is your favorite place to visit?
JM: My hometown Mosquera Nariño.
What is your favorite food?
JM: I really like my Mom´s Shrimp Ceviche. I also really like “Arroz Aliñado” which is yellow rice with chicken, beef, fried noodles and vegetables.
What is your favorite book?
JM: The Secret. I´m not sure who wrote it but it is about overcoming obstacles and self-improvement.
What is the most daring thing, like skydiving, that you have ever done?
JM: I don´t really like extreme activities.
Do you have a fear?
JM: I have a fear of heights but more so than that, I fear being high up in risky situations like in extreme sports.
Which country will win the Copa America?
What is the biggest lesson that your parents have taught you?
JM: Respect. They taught me that you should always respect people.
