Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
He began Para skiing in 2012 in the Leningrad region of the Russian Federation. Prior to that he had been involved in mountaineering and ski touring for over 10 years.
Why this sport?
"Sport for me is a way of life that is extremely important to me. As a child, I was sick a lot, and somehow my friends suggested that I run 10 kilometres. I first said they were crazy, and then I joined them. And I quickly stopped getting sick at all - it was a revelation for me. After the injury, the situation repeated itself - I started to get sick again. And I already knew the recipe for how to return to life."
