365 Project – Day 154 Paralymic Downhill

Posted by on Mar 19, 2010 in 365 Photo Project | No Comments

Today I went to the Paralympic medals ceremony in Whistler.  Of all of the medalist today (36 in total, covering 12 events) this lady, Solene Jambaque of France, was the most emotional.  To watch these people ski and compete when the odds seem to be stacked against them is simply amazing.

Read “Leveling the Playing Field” to get an idea of how someone with two prosthetic legs can compete against someone with one arm missing.

See the medals ceremony here.
