Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He was inspired to start training after seeing the 1998 World Championships in Lahti, Finland.
Why this sport?
As a child everyone around him played football or basketball, but he loved weightlifting. When he told his parents that he wanted to try the sport, they were not enthusiastic about the idea. So he began going to the gym without their knowledge. Eventually, his parents realised the passion he had for the sport and supported him.
