Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up the sport at age 12 at the Kerpape physical therapy clinic in Ploemeur, France. He lived at the facility from age eight months to age 16.
Why this sport?
"My physical therapist asked me if I wanted to try sport shooting. I gave it a go and I really enjoyed it. Now it's a real passion. I feel better in general because of this sport. I'm calmer since I began shooting, whereas before I used to get frustrated and get into trouble. Not a day goes by that I don't think about shooting."
