What do the Paralympics mean to you?
When your friend is an Olympic Champion
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
I did not go to London to see the Olympics. Instead, I stayed in Italy, precisely in Friuli Venezia Giulia, and observed. I followed through a friend of mine, Daniele Molmenti, who is exactly my age, we went to the same junior high school. Two weeks before his leaving to London, we had a drink (iced tea, of course!!!) with some other friends. And it was a great honor to see him on TV and following him in this great adventure! I remember him training close to home, and now, there he is! Great job Daniele!!! We are all waiting for you to come back to celebrate!!!! In the meantime, yesterday night we celebrated and toasted for you!!!!
