Looking to Paralympics, Rio 2016
At Free2move.org we are confident Paratriathlon will contribute to the Paralympic Movement and inspire people and youth worldwide. It has been a long road to reach this milestone but we know the real work begins now for Mikel, Martin and Phil to dedicate their efforts to delivering spectacular Paratriathlon competitions in Paralympics.
Making disabled snow sports happen
Athletes with disabilities have found success in many winter sports, including downhill skiing, Nordic skiing and icehockey. Now, kids and adults with disabilities are also experiencing the joys of snowboarding. At free2move.org we believe that snowboarding and skiing are life experiences for disabled people. Snow sports bring the freedom of the mountain.
Core value of inspiration
Wheelchair basketball is a fantastic sport, played on a standard sized basketball court with standard height basketball hoops. There is no illegal-dribble rule and players are allowed two pushes of their wheels before they pass, dribble or shoot the ball. The wheelchair is counted as part of the body so to block a player, you must stop their chair. The game is fast, furious and is all about tactics, like a game of chess on wheels!
GET INSPIRED BY THE ATHLETES' PASSION FOR WHAT THEY DO
SALTO Systems’ free2move.org social initiative supports projects to enable disabled athletes to achieve sporting excellence and inspire the free2move.org community. Their performances and incredible stories teach the values of acceptance and appreciation for people with any disability.
