That was just so awesome! \o/ ^_^ Thanks for the reminder, I've been meaning to watch the Paralympics too. Well, as much as they'll show over here.

I'm not usually a sports person, but I always try to watch Olympics/Paralympics :) Finland doesn't get that many medals, being a small country, but that just makes each one all the more precious :)

I always admired those people like in this video, transcending their limits. Watching them, I always think, why are we, whole and healthy, more lucky people are complaining so often about our lives? We should be thankful for all we have and do what we have to happily!

Hey Finnish sister, you're right, each medal, each sporting result counts! There are lots of hard work, training and energy behind those and awesome people.

I'm so proud of the outstanding Hungarian sportsmen- and women taking part in Olympics. Hungary is also a small country, but still they won totally 15 medals! ISn't it fantastic?

Totally fantastic, yay for Hungarian athletes! \o/ ^_^ And for my Hungarian fandom sister *hugs* :)

A fun fact if you didn't already know, our languages are related! ^_^ This often comes up when talking about languages here, because Finnish is so different from for example Swedish and Norwegian :)

Yes, I knew about that relationship, I've learnt it at the primary school, many-many years ago.:)

We are relatives, in ancient times our ancestors were relatives in fact. Although our languages have the same origin, but the spoken ones are so different today, so we can't understand each other unfortunately. *hugs back fandom sister*

Well at least we have the fandom in common, and English to use for communication :D

This is seriously cool. I particularly love how right in the middle there's that stuffy old dude who goes 'no you cant', reminding us that outside of the glam of olympia the reality still is that many avenues are bricked off for disabled people, but in a fun way.
