Paralympic Downhill

Today was the paralympic downhill race in Whistler, BC.  For both men and women there are three main categories – standing, sitting and visually impaired.  For a brief explanation of each read “Leveling the Playing Field“.  All I know is that it was amazing to watch.

    The image of the one-legged skier approaching the gate is… perfect! It has it all.

    I cannot even begin to imagine skiing blind. Even very, very slowly seems terrifying to me.
