He began having trouble with his vision in April 2013. He was diagnosed with a degenerative visual condition known as Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy. "I suddenly began to see everything blurry. For example, in the classroom, I knew the colour of my teacher's clothes, but I did not know if he was wearing a sweater or a sweatshirt. As in skiing, I had to go with a guide, of course. But I did not have one. So my dad helped me. The problem was that I was going faster than him. So he was basically controlling me. It was not so safe." (prumyslovka.cz, 20 Feb 2018)
