Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up the sport in early 2013.
Why this sport?
His interest in the sport came after he tried target shooting at his uncle's farm. “I enjoyed it so much I knew I wanted to take it on. The thrill of shooting a good shot and the challenge of doing it again and again inspires me to get better at it. It’s one of the sports where being disabled doesn't matter. It’s about who you want to be.”
