Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up skiing in 1998, and began sit-skiing in 2004.
Why this sport?
He tried several sports after his accident, without much success, until a holiday in 1998 when he attempted skiing. After surgery on his left leg in 2004 he wasn't able to ski standing up any longer, so he began sit-skiing. "I found great pleasure in skiing. My confidence grew and it has become a source of positive energy in my life."
