What is special for you about your sport compared to other sports?

I tried a few sports, but for me throwing the discus was my favourite. There is nothing like the feeling you get when you throw a great discus.

What is your advice as a Paralympic athlete to other people doing sports?

Enjoy the sport you take part in and be patient, it takes years of training to reach the top.

What is your aim for the future?

I want to win a medal at the Paralympic Games and break the world record.

What would be your advice as Paralympic athlete for other people to advance in life?

Be persistent, keep trying and work hard, it will be worth it in the end when you achieve your goal.
