How did you get started in the sport?

I Played American Football for 13 years up until 2014. After a serious leg injury from a misguided tackle caused my  knee to dislocate. Some ligaments and Nerves were damaged, resulting in paralysis and sensory ataxia. I took it upon myself to start Para Athletics, creating a goal to focus on during my recovery. I have been competing in Shot Put ever since.
