What is important for you about sport in general?
For me sport is fun! I do it because I love it and it keeps me healthy.
What advice would you like to give to other people doing sports?
My number one advice is to make sure you are having fun! I think everyone should discover what sport they are good at and what sport they enjoy doing. From there, it is easy to stay motivated and involved.
What is special for you about your sport compared to other sports?
I really enjoy that sport is an individual sport versus a team sport because my successes and my failures all fall on me. I also love the speed that is involved in wheelchair racing! Who doesn't enjoy going fast!?
What would be your advice as Paralympic athlete for other people to advance in life?
Set goals. Then determine what steps you must take to reach those goals and follow the path you have set for yourself. Without a goal, you cannot achieve.
Do you have a personal maxim in life and in sport?
There are no limits!
