Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
He began the sport in 2017 in Lodygowice, Poland.
Why this sport?
He switched from bodybuilding to powerlifting. "For me it [sport] is a break from the world of disability. Doing it, you don't feel any barriers. People with impairments often do not have much to do, to be honest. Instead of sitting at home and looking through the window, it is possible to develop yourself, fulfil your dreams and achieve your goals. It's not just a local competition, you can travel around the world this way, that's how good it is."
