Why this sport?
At age 11 he joined an organisation that offered rehabilitation for children with an impairment. He was forbidden to do sports by doctors as he had asthma, but the condition improved after he got involved in vocal and piano exercises. He was then allowed to do sports and took part in a local competition for people with an impairment. His talent was spotted by coach Sergey Globa, who invited him to start training for long jump.
