📌THE FACT OF THE MONTH
Every Paralympian put a face on togetherness
Tuesday the 24th of August the biggest inclusive event kicked off in Japan, the Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.
Even though all athletes were looking forward to represent their country there were still lots of people without representation. In Rio 2016, one refugee and one asylee athlete made up a two-person Independent Paralympic Team.
Inspired by the overwhelming response from fans and media alike 2016, the International Paralympic Committee decided to form a refugee team with six athletes for Tokyo 2020. This is the first-ever Refugee Paralympic Team.
Currently, there are 82 million displaced people in the world. 12 million of them have disabilities, and most of the time they are faceless. However, the members of this Refugee Paralympic Team put a face to the number and a story to the statistic.
No matter who you are and where you are from, all athletes are different but their shared life experiences, as athletes, Para-athletes, refugees, bond them together. The true power of sports.
