Perhaps some of you might not be aware but the Paralympics Games 2012 is happening right now – 29 August to 9 September in London! It might not have gotten much fanfare from most media but I feel that such athletes should deserve as much coverage and perhaps even greater respect.
Putting their perceived limitations aside, they perform the impossible. Running, swimming, BJJ, cycling and even picking up archery, these abled bodied men and women certainly get my utmost respect for their courage, perseverance and determination. They have indeed shown that Sport doesn’t care who you are – Everyone can take part.
