Jim Roberts is rarely slow off the mark as one of the UK's leading wheelchair rugby players and he has got there ahead of the rest when it comes to next year's Paralympics.
Welshpool-born Roberts became the first Welsh athlete to book his place for Tokyo next year as the countdown begins to the Games which are now just less than a year away.
There are likely to be plenty of others boarding the same plane, though. Three years ago, Roberts was one of 26 Welsh Paralympians who went to Rio de Janeiro - an impressive 10 per cent of the overall GB team - and it looks like being a similar sized Dragonhood who head to Japan.
Roberts seized his own place as part of the GB wheelchair rugby squad that recently won the European Championships in Denmark.
They beat the host nation in the final, 55-45, in a tournament that acts as a Paralympic qualifier.
"It's good to get the Tokyo qualification sorted," said Roberts after the semi-final victory over the Swedes had guaranteed them their ticket to Tokyo.
It won't be the first time the former Welsh cross-country runner has been to the Paralympics. He was 26 when he went to Rio, where Team GB finished fifth in 2016, and is keen to get onto the podium next year.
Team GB are currently ranked fifth in the world and will have to battle with the likes of Japan, the reigning world champions, and Australia, the current Paralympic champions, for the medals in Tokyo.
Joining Roberts in Japan will be the inspirational Phil Pratt, the Newport-born captain of Great Britain's wheelchair basketball squad.
In September, Pratt led his team to glory at the European Championships in Poland, where they beat Spain in the final to earn their passage to Tokyo next summer.
