Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
After his accident he took up tennis, which he played for four years. He also took part in Para cycling and swimming, until 2005 when he tried skiing. He loved it so much that, one week later, he bought his first sit-ski.
Why this sport?
His hometown of Alcaniz, Spain, is a long way from the slopes but he used to go on trips with friends to ski areas. He saw that he had a talent for the sport and decided he would like to get more involved.
