Racing my best with a smile!

Paracanoe has been a Paralympic event since the Rio 2016 Paralympics, but so far only men have competed.
I am therefore devoting all my energy to training so that a new page can be built in Paralympic history at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.
I really appreciate all your warm support.
