The glow of the dark
Today I understand that having lost my sight at the age of 12, was not a punishment, it was an opportunity! Confirmation of this is when I became a part of the Paralympian community and began to train for the Paralympic games.
I became the first Paralympic champion in the history of my country, in London in 2012. I became a triple world champion in para-athletics and today I qualified for my fourth Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2021!
I am proud of every victory, but most of all I am glad I get to be a part of the Paralympic sports world filled with such talented people with an unmatched drive and will for life.
After a hard year for everyone, I hope we will all meet in Tokyo, rejoice, and play some sports!
