Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He first tried alpine skiing at age five.
Why this sport?
He enjoyed sports before his accident and kept on practising afterwards. "I always liked to play sport and do physical activities. Skiing is another of my big passions. I only did not ski the year of my accident and later I found the way of doing it wherever I had the chance. There is always the way to practise sport even with an impairment such as mine. The only thing that is needed is the will to do it."
