Meet The Superhumans

1 Sep

The 2012 Summer Paralympics Games commenced three days ago.

It’s unfortunate that the Paralympics or Special Oympics don’t get as much recognition or fanfare as the “regular” Olympics…because I think the athletes of the Paralympics and Special Olympics are amazing.

In fact, I wrote a post about them a couple of years ago…with special focus on one Japanese Paralympic athlete from the 2010 Winter Paralympics who overcame tragedy in his life twice.

Anyways, have you seen the promotional ad for the 2012 Summer Paralympics that are currently underway in London?

It’s titled “Meet The Superhumans“! It’s a great ad…here it is:

      Yeah, it’s hardly covered by TV at all. They should make a big deal of it … like they do with the Olympics!

      I did see Paralympics judo yesterday on TV here. The athletes were blind!

    The 2012 Summer Paralympics Games end on 2012 September 9th.

    Yesterday, I watched Rina Akiyama win a gold medal for Japan in the 100m Women’s Backstroke Swimming competition.

    Currently Japan is in 25th place for medal count with two gold, three silver and two bronze.
