General interest

Sporting philosophy / motto
He says the most important thing for those who have an impairment is to not become isolated. "You need to trust in close friends. Don't run away from them, do not retreat into yourself. Engage in something - it does not matter what, sports or something else. The main thing is to not sit at home. If you try to find something to hold onto, everything will turn out alright."
