What makes David tick?

Why are sports important to you?
Competing allows me to show myself and others how hard I work at being my best.

 

What is your favorite off-season activity?
When I am not skiing, I am in training for para-dressage.

Who do you admire most?
My trainer

What is one of the things you would put on your “bucket” list?
Competing in the Paralympics in Tokyo.

What is your favorite food?
Tortellini Pizza

What would you say to someone who is thinking about trying adaptive sports?
At first I was hesitant about trying adaptive sports but I see now that if I had tried to keep up in able bodied divisions I would be left behind. We all have our passions, we just achieve them in different ways.
