Yes they can - the Paralympians 2016

Caylie Jeffery 22/Aug/2016

 

Who has seen the UK commercial for the Paralympics 2016?

Here's a link if you haven't because it will give you more goosebumps than anything you have seen in the Rio Olympics so far: We're The Superhumans.

Wow. Just Wow.

The 2016 Rio Olympics has been pretty awesome, and as always, it's been fantastic to watch the elite sportspeople from across the planet doing their best. Yet over 150 000 free tickets given away to school children in Rio went unused. So many paying spectators stayed away with more than a third of tickets unsold.

For the upcoming Paralympics, news reports suggest that only 300 000 seats have been sold from the 2.4 million available. Unbelieveable! What an amazing missed opportunity to see the strength and passion of people who have physical limitations yet can achieve such amazing feats. Imagine the life lessons we could teach our kids by taking them to such events. Resilience, determination, never give up, true human grit, unflagging spirit in the face of disability... the list is endless, as is the courage of the athletes.

Our office is across the road from Kinetic Ultralight Wheelchairs, and we are regularly amazed to see the superhuman abilities of wheelchair users in our community as they test out their new vehicles in the front courtyard.

So let's do what we can to support our Aussie Superhumans of Sport and see them reach for the stars - AwardsandTrophies staff will certainly be keeping our eye on the 2016 Paralympic Games from here, cheering for our country's top athletes, as we continue to provide awards to our local athletes who are being successful in their own home sports and activities.
