Claudio Paul Caniggia (Italian pronunciation: [kaˈniddʒa]; born 9 January 1967 in Henderson, Buenos Aires) is an Argentine football forward, who played 50 times for the Argentine national team. He appeared in three World Cups, and was a member of both rival clubs River Plate and Boca Juniors. Caniggia was known for his speed as a player and competed in Athletics before his football career. He ran his best time for the hundred meters of 10.70s whilst competing in athletic tournaments at the provincial level. At that level he also ran the 200 meters and also competed in long jump. However, he did not reach the National level in athletic tournaments because he had dedicated himself full-time to football, playing for River Plate. Caniggia, as a football player, could run 100 meters in 11.2 seconds. Currently he lives in Marbella, Spain and plays for Wembley F.C.
