Disabled sports have become very popular over the years and give people with various disabilities a lot of confidence and determination. So you can bet that a lot of disabled people will be watching the upcoming London 2012 Paralympics.
The most memorable disabled sport in my opinion is disabled basketball due to its increasing popularity. A person with any disability can take part in a sport that suits them. This includes Blind Cricket, Disabled Tennis, Disabled Power Lifting, Electric Wheelchair Hockey and many more.
A lot has been done to let people know the details of specific disabled sports. For example in 2005 a documentary called Murderball was produced. This documentary was based around Disabled Rugby and the professional athletes who take part in playing it for their countries. The documentary was named Murderball for how much of a contact sport Disabled Rugby can be.
The website YouTube has taken the advantage of uploading lots of disabled athlete’s inspirational stories as to how and why they have not let their disability get in the way of the achievements that they have got over a period of time. These have without a doubt given loads of people with any type of disability a boost in terms of self confidence and pride.
Popular disabled athletes include Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, Hou Bin, Ajibola Adeoye, Natalie du Trot, Craig Koonce and many more.
The Paralympics starts 29th August and finishes 9th September. Watch it and support your country. Don’t let your disability get you down.
