Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport? He took up the sport at age 13 at the Archers of Caledon club in Ontario, Canada.
Why this sport? He was attracted to the sport by the requirement for perfection. When his mathematics teacher at high school learned of his interest in archery, he organised for him to meet with a local coach. "Archery was always an interest of mine since I was a child, and I had always been fascinated with Robin Hood."
