  • "No Limit" is issued by Japanese Para-Sports Association.
That brochure is full of important information of Para-Sports.

公益財団法人日本障がい者スポーツ協会が発行する「NO Limit」💪
各障がい者スポーツの情報が詰まっています。いつもお届けいただいているのに、じっくり読む時間がなかったので、隅から隅まで読みました📖

通常、私が土日両方とも家にいることは、1年で3~4回くらい。
3週間もレッスンがお休みだと、チア作業以外にもできることが増えて、色々勉強できるかな✏️ #parasport #parasports #paraathlete #paralympics #障害者スポーツ #障害者スポーツ指導員

  • 🔥Symmetry has always been a theme and a challenge in my life. Constant joint pain and random dislocations has made it difficult to evenly strengthen my muscles without pain induced compensation. 🥵
For me, I tend to move exercises into my shoulders (if you had seen me a few years back, you would see how overly developed my shoulders became at the expense of the rest of my upper body. 
This created a lot of strain throughout my scapula and even into my trapezius muscles. Over the last 2 years, I have finally made enough progress in my upper body that I can look in a mirror and feel “proportional”. 🦾🦾
In a world of chronic pain, It can be hard to imagine one’s self atop the proverbial mountain top when looking at it from the ground, but I promise you, though there are many more peaks to overcome, the view will be a beautiful one. 💜

  • 3/3 - Meet Hannah, Bionic5K athlete, blind runner and elite triathlete
*
"I really liked that there were so many adaptive athletes at the Bionic5k …. I would like to see more very inclusive events where anyone and everyone can participate. It is normalizing disability, which I think is really important, in that it gives people an entry point into sport if they haven't had that in the past."

  • FEAR // Yassss...I did that ⬅️⬅️⬅️ I climbed over a rope wall 😱🤯⁣
⁣
A few moments before @freiha recorded this I was about to give up 😔 I told myself I couldn’t climb over the wall because:⁣
⁣
1. My right femur is shorter than my left and it won’t stretch that far 🤣⁣
⁣
2. My prosthetic foot does not have the same level of flexibility as a real foot so it won’t be able to rest on the rope on the other side⁣
⁣
3. My little leg isn’t strong enough to hold my body weight even just for a few seconds⁣
⁣
4. My hands are too sweaty and I’ll let go of the rope/bars⁣
⁣
5. I’m going to take a long time to get over the wall and everyone will be mad at me (yes this was going through my head!)⁣
⁣
WHY did I keep going?? Because I made a promise to myself a very long time ago that I would always TRY (especially things that scare the sh*t out of me) - if I fail it’s ok but I have to at least try! ⁣
⁣
Fear can paralyze you but you have a choice, in every moment, are you going to allow the fear to continue to paralyze you or are you going to push through that fear and TRY?⁣
⁣
I genuinely believed everything I was telling myself before I climbed over the wall. I was shaking and my heart was racing! But when I made it to the other side I realized these things MIGHT have happened but they didn’t happen. I survived. Climbing over that wall gave me a much deeper sense of confidence in myself and my little leg - she’s actually stronger than I thought 🦿⁣
⁣
Thank you @skallidis for having my back (literally!!) and to you and @domiaeco for bringing @biawarriordxb to life! Thank you @freiha for your encouragement that day, my Inner Child loves you!! ♥️⁣

  • People need to understand the importance of mental health in #BMX - My biggest inspiration is @gypsyking101 he has taught me that if you get knocked down you get straight back up and try harder!❤❤❤
.
.
Now the only thing that should  knock you down is yourself trying your absolute hardest, not being knocked down by your fellow riders! Too much shit talk in this sport we need to start supporting each other! .
.
Watch out for the edit later of my retribution and mental journey with landing this double flip!💥💯
