If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the Paralympics it’s that the athletes are tough as nails. You’ve not seen fearless until you’ve watched a brutal game of wheelchair rugby and runners on blades bolt through a stadium at full tilt. It’s utterly incredible stuff. But now they’re all done and dusted how can we get our Paralympic fix outside of the official channels?
Well Paraxtreme is upping the ante in the sporting stakes, promoting adaptive extreme sports with the help of some incredible videos. Their aim is to encourage both able-bodied and disabled people to participate in extreme sports with a view to having them better represented in Rio (so far it’s really only BMXing that gets a look in). Once you’ve seen Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham hit the skateparks of London riding his customised wheelchair you’ll be crying out for more dangerous sports in the next games.
