After the closing ceremonies and the prime-time TV coverage ends, though, that universalspirit of competition doesn't immediately fall dormant for another four years. Instead, it transitions into its second phase: the Paralympic Games. At the Olympics, we only have the opportunity to see able-bodiedindividuals competing — what about all the many skilled athletes around the world who approach the challenge with a different set of abilities?
