Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He first tried Para snowboarding in 2012 in Colorado, United States of America.
Why this sport?
"After my injury and the removal of my leg, I struggled with what I would do with my life. I became mentally and physically depressed at the thought of my life not being in the armed forces and not being able to enjoy sports the way I used to. I became so passionate about snowboarding that I immediately started looking for a way to make this my life."
