Vancouver Here I Come!

03.07.10
On my way to Vancouver for the Paralympics!!! I invite you to follow my adventures on Facebook and/or through my blog.

During these past months of preparation as a volunteer for the Winter Games I have learned a lot about the Paralympics and the individual athletes participating. I have a HUGE amount of respect for the Paralympic athletes because they compete on the same exact courses as the Olympic athletes, but with physical and visual disabilities. They don’t get a fraction of the media attention or recognition they deserve.

U.S. Athletes to Follow:

Sledge Hockey — Alexi Salamone (from Grand Island, NY), Steve Cash (goalie) and Taylor Chace

Alpine Skiing — Alana Nichols (women/sitting) and Chris Devlin-Young (men/sitting)

Biathlon — Andy Soule and Kelly Underkofler

Cross-Country Skiing — Chris Klebl

Wheelchair Curling — James “Jimmy Jam” Joseph
