When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up wheelchair racing in 2004. He began para-cross country skiing in 2005.
Why this sport?
He started skiing as a form of cross training but found his body responded better to skiing than any other sport.
He was involved in a cycling accident while training for a triathlon in 2003. He spent six months in rehabilitation. "After my accident I was paralysed from the waist down for two-and-a-half years. Now I am standing and walking. I don't know what the end result will be but I keep getting better. I stay open-minded." (straight.com, 11 Mar 2010; paralympic.ca, 01 Mar 2010)
