Paralympics’ games become more and more popular. Thousands of sportsmen and sportswomen who have refused to give up and are ready to face a challenge take part in them. Their positive attitude to life is an inspiration to many. People who have become invalids for various reasons understand that their life can be interesting and useful. Life itself is a total miracle. A lot of Paralympic sportsmen had had a terrifying experience before they understood it. Alex Ashapatov was a famous sportsman when he lost his leg in an accident in 2002. He continued going in for sport and won several competitions first in volley-ball then in disk-throwing. Olesya Vladykina who won the swimming competition in the Peking Olympic Games won a victory over herself. A year before the Olympiad the tourist coach had rolled down in Thailand, she had survived the horrible accident but lost her arm and her back was seriously bruised. Most people would have become depressed after such a tragedy but Olesya amazed everybody by her courage. She didn’t waste time feeling sorry for herself but began to train hard. Strange as it may appear her disability gave her secret power. Here is the result: she got a gold Olympic medal. Olesya thinks that only extreme moments make you use your potential. Her motto is “Never give up!” We should write more about such people and do everything possible so that they shouldn’t feel invalids even in a wheelchair.Открыть всю книгу
