Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up the sport at age 14.
Why this sport?
"I did four years of volleyball and since I wanted to improve, because I liked it a lot, my dad took me to the gym to boost my fitness. My dad did powerlifting, body building and took me to the gym to do this strengthening. My coach told me that there would be a weightlifting competition and initially I did not want to do it because I wanted to do only the strengthening and I did not care about the weights. I saw that my father was a little disappointed with my initial choice not to participate so I participated to make him happy."
