1. Fred Tomasino, an amateur cyclist

Racing has allowed me to meet and make friends with a number of enthusiasts of varying skill, age, and backgrounds. I have ridden in spectacularly scenic areas that I would not otherwise have explored. I've developed a deeper appreciation of our beautiful planet. My fitness has increased, my weight has decreased. Racing has given me an increased sense of individuality.

2. Jack, a handicapped basketball player

3. Tanya, an ex-downhill skier

... for me sport means a lot ... I spent my best years in sport and I have the best memories of those times, ... and my best friends ... . But ... I also remember that sport can be quite intrusive and unfair. Your coaches are not very interested in what you feel or what you are - they need results and they don't care about anything else. If you have any problems - they forget about you. And sport is real hard ... . You train, and train, and train. It takes all your time, so that you have no time for the disco, or a visit to the theatre, or anything else ... though whn you get used to this routine, you strat liking it, it's you life and you learn a lot about life.


4. Frank Poesy, a handicapped mountain biker

I'm a handicapped mountain biker. I've lost my left arm just below the elbow. I hold my handlebar with a prosthesis. I took up biking to get back in shape. At first I had trouble handing my old touring bike, so I purchased a mountain bike. I soon became addicted and prefer riding to drivind a car. Mountain biking has been a great experience. It's building both my arms. I've been able to overcome my difficulties. Other benefits include weight control. I don't drink alcohol any more to relax. And at 36, I feel like 20.


5. Ivan Yarygin, Olympic Champion in freestyle wrestling

Sport has become a part of my life, to be more exact, not a part, but the main concern of my whole life. My way to the top was difficult and thorny. But I don't have any regrets. Thanks to sport my outlook on life has improved.
