#IND Rising Again In Olympics - #Thread

This is going to be a bit long but really interesting as how from one #Bronze at Sydney 2000 we have come to 7 #Medals after 20 years; a journey guided by @geetssethi and @padukoneprakash
Yes, the two maestros and grand champs of their era. So, the story begins at the end of #Sydney2000, where India was sitting in the medal tally with only one #Bronze, a wholehearted thanks to @kmmalleswari to get us in the medal tally.
After the olympics, Geet Siriram Sethi ws invited to a dinner hosted for the Indian Contingent. While talking to them he had observed the primary cause behind the dejection in our athletes; Money. For past all those years our athletes were not been given any cash incentives. 3/11

«Ma che disabilità ha?»

Ogni giorno che passa, qui a #Tokyo2020, è la domanda che ci facciamo più spesso.

Alle Paralimpiadi la disabilità non si vede. Esiste, ma non esiste.

THREAD (1/8)
Alle Paralimpiadi la disabilità c’è ma non si vede, non la vediamo più noi.

Siamo costretti a sforzarci per vederla, capirla e raccontarla.

Dovere di cronaca, ma la verità è che non la vediamo più.
Vediamo sguardi vispi, tenaci, emozionati, luminosi.

Vediamo corpi e fisici pazzeschi, muscoli e atlete e atleti straordinari.

Vediamo potenza e velocità e mira e grazia e destrezza.

Albinos w Afryce to ktoś przeklęty. Zobaczyć go to pech: nie wyjdzie ci interes, zachorujesz albo ktoś z rodziny itp. Za to amulety z ich ciała pomagają na wszystko - pukiel włosów zapewni szczęście, stopy - bogactwo, penis - jurność. Ćwiartowani maczetami, okaleczani...
„Gdybym nie uciekła z Mali pewnie już bym nie żyła. Albo została bardzo okaleczona. W najlepszym razie wydana za mąż w wieku 14 lat i trzymana w zamknięciu" mówi Adiaratou, złota medalistka #Tokyo2020 na 100 m osób niedowidzących w barwach swej nowej ojczyzny – Hiszpanii
Niestety w Afryce wciąż istnieją przesądy, że albinos to owoc związku kobiety z demonem, obdarzony niezwykłą mocą. Toteż noworodki często są zabijane zaraz po porodzie. A jeśli matka upiera się zachować dziecko, rodzina się jej wyrzeka. Dorośli są atakowani w domach i na ulicach

While Dinesh Herath’s world class performance brought honor to our country and region, I noticed some had questioned the legitimacy of this win, questioned his disability and some reached out to me for clarification. Here are few things I'd like to share,
1) When you hear the word disability, you immediately think of someone who uses a wheelchair, a hearing aid, a white cane, and so on. However, did you know that not all disabilities are visible? Invisible disabilities, or hidden disabilities are primarily neurological in nature.
Chronic pains, chronic fatigue, long term depression/ anxiety, schizophrenia, autism, ADHD, HIV/AIDS, diabetes and etc. So, the gentle reminder here is that ‘Not All Disabilities Are Visible’.

Él es Morteza Mehrzad, el deportista paralímpico más alto de la historia y el segundo hombre más alto del mundo.

Conoce su apasionante historia ↓

#Paralympics #Tokyo2020
Nació en Irán 🇮🇷 hace 33 años, con acromegalia; una afección que provoca que la glándula pituitaria produzca excesiva hormona de crecimiento.
A los 15 años, Morteza se fracturó la pelvis y, a causa de ello, su pierna derecha dejó de crecer, quedando 15 centímetros más corta que la izquierda y provocándole dificultades para caminar.

This video will go down in history as evidence of Pakistan's Arshad Nadeem stealing the javelin of Neeraj Chopra at #Tokyo2020.
Neeraj's first throw could have been better if this shameful incident didn't happen.
Arshad is lucky that @WeAreTeamIndia didn't lodge a complaint.
@WeAreTeamIndia Those who want to know the context, please see this quote from @Neeraj_chopra1.
This incident was being portrayed by some sports journalists that Arshad Nadeem had "donated" his javelin to Neeraj for his first throw.
Turns out, Arshad had taken Neeraj's javelin without permission
Yes. Very apparent in this video. But glad Neeraj Chopra didn't let this incident affect him. Otherwise, India could have lost an Olympic Gold.
