Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up shooting in 2006 with the Mariestads SG club in Sweden.
Why this sport?
"At age six I started playing football like a lot of my friends did, but the older I got, the harder it became for me. The illness sadly forced me to stop playing football, but instead I became responsible for the team's statistics. While I was doing that, I began to look for another sport that would suit me better. Then one day my father was reading in the newspaper that Mariestads SG had a shooting test day. I went there, tried it, and settled on shooting."
