Ludwig Guttmann

Did you know that the Paralympics was started in 1948 by a British physician, Ludwig Guttmann? His reasoning was to recognize the value of athletic training and competition for Britain’s injured World War II veterans. After all these years, how disappointing that no major U.S. network is broadcasting this amazing and important event, especially when you consider that other countries such as Australia, Brazil, Canada and China will be showing such coverage.
