He took up athletics at age seven, and began focusing on discus at age 18. (sixarbysimon.com, 12 Apr 2020; sok.se, 01 Jan 2019)

"I have been involved in sports all my life, including ping pong, golf and football. In the end, I felt that athletics was what I wanted to do. I struggled at first though, with all the different disciplines and variation in the training. Quite quickly I noticed that I was developing faster in the throwing disciplines. Over time I became more and more focused on throws, and since 2013 I have been a discus thrower." (sixarbysimon.com, 12 Apr 2020)
