Salute to the Paralympians–& All Behind the Scenes

11 Sep

USA Women’s Wheelchair Basketball Team 2012

WOW. What a buzz attending some of the Paralympic Games here in London last week! Watching equestrian, swimming and athletics performed superbly by men and women who each had a dramatic story of overcoming the odds.  Even caught a hot USA vs China women’s wheelchair basketball game that ended in overtime, 68 to 65 for a US win, hurray! Screamed myself hoarse.

Three cheers for Wheels for the World,  the Christian agency that supplied wheelchairs, crutches and other aids for the Paralympians to take home with them. Some of them actually had to borrow wheelchairs for the Games!  Check out http://www.assistnews.net/STORIES/2012/s12090027.htm Most also took home special sports editions of the Bible with athlete testimonies, thanks to the Bible Society.
