The winner of the Single Scull competition at the Para-Olympic is a former ballerina who lost the use of her legs due to brain damage and a racing scull is usually a leg intensive sport.

What year are we in I thought we were in 2008 I thought everyone knew the exeptance thing. We are all living on the same ship so that makes us pretty equal. If this ship goes down so will we all. So to me it is look after all your shipmates. No-one wants a sinking ship. Smile.

INSTEAD OF STARING AT THEM AND PITYING THE HANDICAPPED--WHY DON'T WE LOOK AT THEM AND REALIZE THE OBSTACLES THEY HAVE HAD TO OVERCOME.

People who overcome obstacles always inspire us. It is an opportunity to be grateful for the blessing that we have and the examples of people around us that show us that overcoming is more possible than we ever thought. Thanks for the post!

There is that saying the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence! Just be grateful for what we have and appreciate how we got to the point where we are. True every one does have there crosses to bear including the paraolympians, they are just not giving up, they are getting on with it. Anyone who overcomes an obstacle is a hero in my eye's. To all the paraolympians. Well done for your efforts. To all the people that support people overcoming their obstacles what ever it may be, as there are plenty of obstacles, well done to you too.

I too am inspired by these people. It is amazing what they have accomplished. But I also think we each have our own crosses to bear and obstacles to overcome that are just as great, some are just not as visible as others.

My first mini-goal is to get down to 119.5 lbs (and break that 20's barrier). I am on my way!

I was just thinking... some people do have their arms, their legs, their eyes... they have everything, and still feel sorry for themselves, still thinks that life is unfair with them.

Watching the Paraolympic games is like a punch in our stomach. They are true heroes for getting where they got, and we should be inspired by their example! I am!

Good day to everybody!
