Impairment
He was born with cerebral palsy, affecting his entire right side. "For me, I don't have as much muscle [in my legs] and I struggle with my balance. But in everyday life there are not that many obstacles. The only thing is I walk a bit different and I run a bit slower." (AFP, 18 Mar 2010)
