Olympian Plus

Ahead of the Channel 4 Paralympics coverage this summer, they've produced some really good trailers. This one, featuring Oscar Pistorius, is particularly inspirational:

He makes two really powerful points about accepting yourself and focusing on your strengths.

"I've got two disabilities, I've got millions of abilities..."

"If you can give me a Ferrari 999GTR, I'd rather take that than my legs!"

I'm going to be recommending Form Tutors at our school show these their students during registration times to challenge their assumptions and raise awareness (and respect) for people in this situation.
