The general rule is, that if your surname is quite common, you will often (but not always) be referred to by your second family name/middle name/second first name. Sometimes you get to "choose" it yourself, but when it comes to famous athletes the media certainly plays a role as well.

Nah, esa no es una regla general. Nadie va a pedir que no usen su apellido paterno solo porque es muy comun, que locura es esa? Podra habra uno que otro caso (como Bahamontes), pero esta lejisimos de ser la regla general.
