Stereotype of an athlete

is strong, tall, able.

But sometimes the athlete

is disabled.

Maybe the athlete

stumbled or fell

and maybe the athlete

started to swell.

Our Para-athletes

live every day

as athletes

who just want to play

their sport.

Every athlete

regardless of ability

is an athlete

of great humility.

All athletes

know they work for the team

because all athletes

live the same dream.
