It’s kind of sad to say that this is my last post, but during these nearly 30 days, we did have lots of memories. Honestly, though the Olympic Games were so exciting and commanded the attention of world, the Paralympic Games made a more indelible impression on me.
We had an opportunity to watch the Alpine Skiing and Wheelchair Curling in person last week. It was great fun and changed my mind.
Usually people pay more attention to the Olympic Games than the Paralympics, though we do know that the athletes participating in both of them are hardworking and have great persistence.
I can remember that during the Alpine Skiing, people were all cheering their favourites on. Athletes were guided by another person who gave them instructions with words. But once we were required to be quiet a little bit, because the athletes who was having the game is not only visually impaired but also has difficulty in hearing. Before I went to watch the Paralympic events, I felt it was a pity that I couldn’t get a chance to watch Olympic Games in person. But after watching the Paralympic Games, I started to feel sad and regret. It was really a sorrow to see those paralympians fall down and some of them even couldn’t stand up by themselves.
Vancouver has bid farewell to the tenth Winter Paralympics yesterday night. People have started to look forward to the 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sochi.
Thanks Canada, thanks Vancouver and Whistler, thanks all the athletes, thanks for giving us the best ever Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
BTW I’m gonna share some photos and video I took during the Wheelchair Curling games with you guys. Hope you like them..
