Other information
In 2000 he was part of a group of weightlifting enthusiasts who founded the club Force Athletique et Handisport [FAHVA] in Villeneuve d'Ascq, France. "We were a group of people who practised wheelchair basketball and weightlifting and were looking for a gym or a facility where we could practise weightlifting, but we could not find anything, so we decided to found our own organisation."
