Did anyone get the opportunity to attend, participate, watch or listen to the 2012 London Paralympics Games?
I know there were many outstanding individuals participating in this world class event. I want to share a story about one of the participants, Alex Zanardi, who, after becoming a double-amputee during a horrific race car crash was able to win a medal at the 2012 Paralympics Games.
What inspired me about Alex Zanardi is his attitude to reinvent himself to continue to pursue his dreams, despite any obstacles which he had to overcome.
Learn about Alex Zanardi in Fox News: Double-amputee Alex Zanardi hopes to race in 2013 Indy 500.
Another excellent example of a medal winner at the 2012 Paralympics Games is Vincent Boury. Vincent won the medal in Table Tennis.
Having the privilege to know Vincent Boury, I enjoy his enthusiasm for life, willingness to help others and his competitiveness, despite his perceived challenges.
Does anyone want to share their thoughts after reading about Alex Zanardi and Vincent Boury? Does anyone want to share their experience with the Paralympics games? If you attended, participated or know somebody who was able to compete, what did you learn? If you participated, do you have any tips for others who may want to compete in a future event?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and comments.
