AWARENESS DOCUMENTARY
He participated in a documentary after the Norwegian Confederation of Sports [NIF] recruitment drive for athletes with an impairment. Film makers followed him as he handcycled the length of Norway, covering about 2700km [1677 miles] between Lindesnes in the south and Nordkapp in the north and visiting 40 towns from April to June 2011. The documentary resulted in more than 500 new athletes registering with the confederation. "It was an experience of a lifetime," he said. "I met many nice people and had a say in a lot of things that I otherwise would not have experienced. I feel I've grown and I am even more concerned that people with disabilities should have the same opportunities as everyone else to be physically active." (idrett.no, 09 Oct 2012)
