So, I play wheelchair rugby, I’ve been playing wheelchair rugby for the last five years. And for me, I guess making that transition into a manual chair, wheelchair rugby just kind of really spoke to me because it’s a quadriplegic-focused sport. I mean I knew that I could be good at it, and people were like, “well, you played basketball, why can’t you play basketball?” But a lot of people don’t understand that that’s a paraplegic sport, you have to have the hands, you have to have the triceps. So, playing wheelchair rugby kind of gave me the even playing field, something I could be good at. However, I didn’t know anything about it, so I had to have a huge learning curve, I mean, I’m still learning. It’s so much fun, so much fun.
