Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up the sport in 2010 in Italy.
Why this sport?
"I first registered as blind in 2007 and got involved in skiing in 2010 with the charity Blind Veterans, when we spent a week in Italy. Before that, I'd never been on skis in my life. It was tough, because when people were trying to explain things it was hard to understand what they meant without being able to see it for myself. With practice I got better and in 2015 I joined the Armed Forces Para Snowsports Team."
