Why this sport?
After attending the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing as a spectator, he decided he wanted to compete at the Games. At the time he was playing amputee football but that was not a sport included in the Games. He wanted to try athletics but was told by prosthesis specialists it would be unlikely he could be successful in the sport. He also tried table tennis, but was then invited by Sergey Gorbunov, director of an adaptive physical education club in Domodedovo, Russian Federation, to start playing Para ice hockey.
