Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up the sport in 2012.
Why this sport?
He had previously played electric wheelchair hockey but also wanted to try a sport that could lead him to the Paralympic Games. "From a teammate I learned about Para athletics and wondered what he was doing. He told me he was throwing a club. At first that sounded funny to me. But in 2012 I tried it out a couple of times with him and found out that it was not bad at all and that I was quite good. That is why I became a member of Athletics Without Barriers Pardubice [formerly Hvezda Pardubice] in 2013 and took up the sport fully."
