Blindness or paralysis doesn’t keep people from fulfilling their dreams of achievement. Last week, more than 75 adaptive athletes competed at the 2017 Stance ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship in La Jolla, CA. The four-day competition concluded with Team Brazil taking gold, Australia the silver, and Team USA the bronze.
“This Team Gold Medal will inspire so many others to get into the sport in Brazil and around the world,” said gold-medalist Alcino Neto.
If you are an adaptive athlete your story can inspire other young, physically impaired individuals to consider sports. We’d love to hear your story.
