Young DM: Paralympics


The Paralympics has been addictive and fun to watch. I have loved learning about new sports and have been inspired by those competing in the events who I previously wouldn’t of thought it would be possible. Leg amputees doing the high jump, armless athletes doing archery to name just a few. I feel like I should start becoming more active and get involved with some sports. I often feel I’m letting the disabled community down by not attempting to becoming involved. The question for me is, what sport and where can I do it? I would love to do wheelchair football but I seem unable to fnd a club which fits my requirements! Has the Paralympics inspired you? I’m very much hoping that the hosting of the Paralympics in England will result in hundreds more accessible clubs popping up over England and a greater awareness of disability amongst current clubs, allowing inclusion to be increased.
