SA’s
support of and interest in disabled sports is well known and we’ve always
been fans of a disabled group of sailors here here in San Diego, Challenged
America. Urban Miyares, co-founder of Challenged America presents a perspective
on a recent story ruling against the use of prosthetics in the Olympics.

This story about the court ruling regarding a disabled athlete and the Olympics is
terrible and may set-back many elite athletes with disabilities…and
is definitely upsetting to those of us who are active in promoting extreme
sports by those special athletes who seek to compete in the mainstream.
