    Paralympics Golden Moment

    On my way home today (7 Sept 2012) from work, I saw someone on a wheelchair about to board the Jubilee train. She was smiling. She showed us (passengers) her gold medal and offered it to those who want their picture taken with it. I introduced my self, asked her name and I noticed that she's a very good speaker, someone who can inspire anyone. I asked her if it's ok for her if I will share our picture in CNN iReport, she answered "YES". This is our image taken by someone I failed to get the name , using my camera. A golden moment with the golden lady from Australia. Please meet Liesl Tesch, Paralympic gold-medallist of the Two-Person Keelboat (SKUD18) held on Sept. 5,2012 in Weymouth and Portland. This is what Paralympics mean to me; Witnessing the prowess of athletes with a range of physical and intellectual disabilities and if possible meeting some of the best at the top.
