Paralympics

13 Sep

I wonder why the Olympics is continuously in the news and shown on television during the Games…but the Paralympics goes by hardly noticed.

The Paralympics is the Olympics games for handicapped athletes. In my opinion, these athletes overcame greater obstacles to get to the Games.

They should be supported more.

This year’s Paralympics Games go from September 6-17, 2008.

As of today, China has 37 Gold medals (109 total), Great Britian has 33 Gold medal (69 total), and America has 23 Gold medals (56 total).
Japan is currently in 20th place with 3 Gold medals (12 total).

All of these athletes are stars!
