Sport Specific Information
Why this sport?
When he was forced to retire from his work as a nursing aid in a mental health institution, he got some information on sports for disabled, and found he had two options - scuba-diving or shooting. "I chose the latter, despite having some doubts on how I was going to hold the weight of the gun given my disability," he says.

Sporting philosophy / motto
"The best thing to do is enjoy things you can do right now, and do not waste time missing things you could have done in the past." (asemgalicia.com, 01 Jul 2007)

Impairment
One day when he was 21, he noticed he couldn't comb his hair properly. He didn't make a big deal about it, thinking he was tired or injured. Eventually he had to go to the doctor, and from there to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. In 2004 he had a car accident and was given a disability allowance.
