RECLASSIFICATION
In 2017 he was placed in a different competition category for after his impairment was reclassified. "It was probably the biggest setback I've had because the conditions changed quickly and radically. I was classified quite early [the first time] so I noticed the change more than others. I haven't trained as much as I could. I can do more and I don't think my development curve has finished yet." (nsk.se, 18 May 2018)
