Sport News III

Today is the start of the

Paralympics in London!

My personal tip, watch

Wheelchair Rugby and Wheelchair Basketball

on TV. It is unbelievable how fast one can move in a wheelchair!!!

In February 2012, when I was in Tenerife in the wheelchair hotel “Mar y Sol”, the Swedish national team was training for wheelchair rugby, (see older blogpost with video).

I tried myself in wheelchair hockey, “Sport News II”.

During the opening ceremony I even recognized a Swedish player.

Wheelchair basketball is just power:

Frankfurt “Mainhatten Sky-Wheelers”

Sailing is of course paralympic as well!

In Mallorca there is an organization FUNDACIÓN HANDISPORT
With them a wheelchair user can go waterskiing, golfing and driving beach buggy, and even sailing.

I have tried it of course, it was a perfect day:

What would have happened when my sailing teacher (behind me in the picture) would have fallen into the water?

For the next Paralympics I still have to practice a bit. ;-)

    so wie ich dich kenne hättest du mit einigen Kabelbindern die du ja mit Sicherheit dabei hast sowie 2-5 Schlüsselbändern eine Autosteuerung für den Segler gebaut nach einem kleinen Umweg über einige Inseln in der Nähe (zwecks abstimmung der Anlage) sodann den Weg in Richtung Atlantikquerung fortgesetzt………..

    …Dein Ansatz ist nicht schlecht…

    Mit meinem linken Schuh, 2 Schlüsselbändchen und 4 Kabelbindern, wäre ein

    Macgyver-Sextant

    zum navigieren in Windeseile fertig gewesen ;-)
