Start He first tried Para Nordic skiing in November 2015 at an identification camp in Canmore, AB, Canada. He began competing in January 2016. (sudburysports.com, 09 Feb 2016)
Reason "I was sending a message to the Sudbury Accessible Sports page on Facebook. They had a picture of a [ice sledge hockey] team from Ohio, but not our team. I ended up 'liking' the page, and my news feed was getting flooded with information regarding para-Nordic skiing from [coach] Patti Kitler. I kept seeing all these pictures of sit-skis, and I thought that it looked like a lot of fun. It just seemed like such a natural fit, going from ice sledge hockey to something like that."
