One Inspires Many

"One inspires many." That was the theme for the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver 2010 Paralympics. I actually had no idea if they were going to be televised. Just goes to show how little known the Paralympics is in comparison to the Olympics. It's surprising really because if you think about it, watching athletes with disabilities play sports like there was nothing that could have stood in their way is unbelievable and inspiring. One of the coolest things at the opening ceremonies was the performance by Luca "Lazylegs" Patuelli, a break dancer who can't use his legs, & the flashmob of dancers that joined him. It's said to be the world's largest flashmob ever which included the thousands of spectators! Check out these incredible pictures! The video quality isn't great but it's the best I could find to show how cool this flashmob was! About halfway through you can see the audience moving and joining in the dance :)
