Hi !
Every evening, after my homework, I watched the Paralympic Games with my family. I was very impressed by the athletes. Contrary to the Olympic Games, I really had the feeling that the sportsmen and -women didn't fight against the other athletes but against their handicap. I really find great that handicapped persons can practice a sport and I imagine that it's very fulfilling. Before the Paralympic Games, I was interested in practicing a medical or paramedical job. Watching these games strengthened me in the fact that I want to help handicapped persons. Now, I'm really sure of it. =)

I especially like the blind football. I think it's very difficult to score a goal with your eyes closed. It's awesome. I was very impressed.

I thought it was all very cool but specially the blind football and the swimming. The basket game was very impressing too.

I had no idea that the paralympics even existed but it's really fascinating that all those people can do these amazing things. I think it's very brave of these people to make it this far and to show up in front of this large audience

I think this video shows us that you should never get up that nothing is impossible. In Paralympic Games we can see that people with limited possibilities can do diffrent complicated sport exercises much better than others. This video motivate us to impove our skills in sport and education.

The video was very inspirational and motivational!
It has a great message that paralyzed people matter just as much as everybody else, Isn't it cool that some people can dance without a leg or an arm?
I wish everyone gets inspired by this and keep doing what they like and following their dreams.
I don't think I will watch the usual Olympics, but I want to watch this! //Smilla, Enoir, Timo

I think it's really inspiring that people without certain body parts and stuff can participate in sports and the video really shows that, it's fantastic. No matter if you're missing a leg or a hand, you can still compete and be good at sports. I think that a lot of people look down on people with disabilities and it really shows that they are just as normal as anyone without disabilities.

I thought it was absolutely fantastic! It gives disabled people a chance to show what they truly are capable of. I truly think this video inspired a lot of people and gave them hope that no matter who you are or what you wanna do, you can do it, so JUST DO IT!

Nothing should stop you just blecause you'ré disable for life. We would guess that it hasn't been easy for them and this only shows that nothing is impossible, we got huge respect for them.

I don't watch the Paralympic Games. In fact I rarely watch the Olympic Games.I have seen this video before and I was so impressed by their skills. I think that their will that has pushed them to train so hard is contagious. After I saw this video I thought: Not even the sky's the limit.
