Description

An uplifting and engaging celebration of Paralympic champions and the sports they dominate

Discover the world of Para sport and meet some of its greatest athletes in this fascinating look at the third-largest sporting event in the world, the Paralympic Games.

This nonfiction book introduces readers to Canadian Paralympians and the sports they play, from PEI-born Para ice hockey pro Billy Bridges, to Goalball player and Iranian refugee Ahmad Zeividavi. Each section details a competitor's journey to professional sports, their greatest triumphs, and what inspires them most. Along the way, readers will deepen their knowledge of Para sports like Wheelchair curling, Para swimming, and more.

Drawing on interviews with competitors and comprehensive research, Amazing Athletes examines how disability and sport intersect, and encourages readers to persevere as they pursue their passions, athletic or otherwise. Dynamic, full-color photos bring the athletes to life, while a glossary invites curiosity and further research.
