captain he was injured in two thousand and two while serving in the russian military in chechnya. still does well before the age of twenty five i used to have a completely different life rules of football with a group but after the injury i turned to sports to realise my. he went from swimming to taking up a chance to join russia's brand new sledge hockey squad. because the work are your words no one is going to bring you things on a silver platter but here we had an opportunity to work for it since two thousand and nine when we were told we were going to participate in the stockton paralympics it's been our driving force in a country that struggled to accommodate people's disabilities russia's paralympic coach says the team is helping to change perceptions in the demo so we're putting on the second a new chin was more of these guys managed to prove to themselves their relatives and the entire society that they are not people with disabilities but people with unlimited abilities. he has been

a part of paralympics is ninety ninety four but this is the first year that russia will compete this board only came here four years ago his body in remembers before the movie version of what we were just staring at one another not really knowing what to do with first. let me show you work on this one here is the sledge for what it is this is the blade and this small area is the seat. which means it's terribly unsteady so just imagine you have to keep your balance and simultaneously carry the puck you keep falling down and it takes a lot of time to get back up but now we're skilled at it. because of these sledge hockey players the road just so she hasn't been easy it's taken an immense amount of hard work personal sacrifice and dedication but the payoff is that it's just on the ice the possible super bowls after this experience i believe that people who have survived a car crash or a plane crash will look at us and realize that even with an injury like that you

2:26 am
bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off or excuse to build up some infrastructure by i think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand lympics and beijing yet china is really developing the last twenty years but the olympics really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think or the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i hate to say it but i think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again and then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion.
