i enjoy

I love how everyone plays under the same conditions in goalball, without the use of sight. The more you practice, the more you learn various techniques and come up with all kinds of ideas.

Strong points

My strength is my defense skills and a playstyle that skirts around the difference in physical size between myself and other players.
