Reason for taking up the sport

This was a sport I had never seen or heard about before, and as soon as I saw the opportunity to take it up, I signed myself up for it. A few hours into my first ever training session, I knew I had already fallen in love with it, and my dream ever since, was to one day be able to take part in the Olympics."
