But here’s the good news: no one starts out a world-class athlete!

As we all gather around the TV to watch the Paralympic Games in Rio which will be on NBC starting on September 8, remember that when cheering on Team USA and watching your favorite country/sport, one thing to keep in mind is that winning any medal is a culmination of a long journey filled with HOURS of Grueling Work!

One Giant Step for Paralympics, One small step backwards for failed leadership

One Giant Step for Paralympics, One small step backwards for failed leadership Tagged with:

I am sure we are all familiar with what has been going on with the Russian delegation in what has become an unfortunate situation for athletes that have been banned from the Olympics and Paralympics. It is unfortunate for these particular athletes who have seemed to be involved in a situation that was out of control. Yet, out of this sadness, there will be victory for all Paralympians.

The Reason why we have the Paralympics?

The Reason why we have the Paralympics? Tagged with:

As we have finished watching an outstanding Olympic games we can fill the next two weeks with anticipation for the Paralympic games which be held September 8-17. The best part of these games is that they will be on the same TV channel as the Olympics. Now, I do look forward to the break! After being glued to my TV at night and on weekends I can use a little break. But not too long! Remember the Paralympics have about 19 different sports plus they will also be in the same beautiful city of Rio. What should not be forgotten about these Paralympic games is that there would be no Paralympic Games if it is was not for the effort of the athletes, NBC, USOC, IOC, Rio Olympic Committee and Dr. Ludwig Guttmann. Who is Dr. Guttmann?

What has been the best part of your summer?

What has been the best part of your summer? Tagged with:

It is not every day that you get an opportunity to go to Moscow, Russia. I am not sure if people choose Moscow as a vacation spot. However, I, along with 8 other USA representatives, was selected to be part of this historical trip. I eagerly accepted for three reasons: one, I was able to travel to a country that I had never been before. I got to visit a friend from Moscow, who I met in the states about 3 years ago. Last, I was given an opportunity to teach and play wheelchair rugby. After 20 years of playing wheelchair rugby you would think that I would be burned out. Not yet!

A chance of a lifetime

A chance of a lifetime Tagged with:

As we near the end of the summer, we also start tuning in to watch our countries Olympic and Paralympic heroes take flight. The flight is a culmination of a four year journey that many people start and but not everyone finishes. What is unknown is the painful and arduous journey to get there. What starts as a dream turns into a quest to go where you have never gone and achieve what has only been dreamed in a vision.

Authenticity, Muhammad Ali and the Power of Sport

Authenticity, Muhammad Ali and the Power of Sport Tagged with:

The word authenticity is being thrown around a bit casually these days, a trending “buzz word” in the urban vernacular. We hear people make statements such as, “I am just being me” when they choose to act certain ways or express their opinions.
