Sport specific information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He first tried Para skiing in France.
Why this sport?
He previously competed in Para swimming, but switched to Para skiing when his condition worsened and the muscles in his wrists became too weak. "My auntie lives in a French ski resort and we went there a couple of years ago [speaking in 2017]. I used to snowboard but it was suggested I try a sit-on ski. I wasn't keen but thought I would give it a go. I got the hang of it quickly and really enjoyed it. I picked it up really quickly and became obsessed with skiing."
