So, if you enjoyed the Olympics and haven’t have your fill of world class athletes …
Get ready for the Paralympics, which is like the Olympics for the physically disabled, starting in less than 2 weeks, on August 29.
Like the regular Olympics, they will be held in London, and they will use many of the same venues.
For you folks in the host nation, you can watch coverage on the UK’s Channel 4.
Not as much TV coverage here in the United States. The NBC Sports Network will have one hour highlight shows on Sept. 4, 5, 6 and 11, and a 90 minute special on Saturday, Sept. 16.
The official Paralympic website, www.paralympic.org, will have hundreds of hours of live streaming as well.
This public service announcement brought to you by a wheelchair user and former competitor in the Michigan Wheelchair Games. So yes, I’m biased.
Still, check it out. You just might like it. And, let’s go USA!!!
