Sport Specific Information
Sport Specific Information
Reason for choosing this sportHe combined skating with gymnastics when he was younger. When his training sessions for both sports started to clash, he decided to focus on skating. "There is so much that goes into it. Training hard, the tension before the race, the idea that when it comes down to it you are really on your own."
