Check this guy out


from ABC Grandstand
This is one of the great stories of the Paralympics. Matthew Stutzman, a 29-year-old archer from the United States, is competing in London. Stutzman was born without arms, but he has overcome his disability to achieve great things in his life. One of his greatest achievements, came earlier this week, when he won silver at the 2012 Games.Picture Tweet from @ London2012 Great shot! Matt Stutzman (USA) takes the silver medal in the men's Archery Individual Compound
Very Inspirational - Try positioning a bow with your feet and holding the arrow with your mouth. Very inspirational and well done to Matt.
Congrats to Jacqi Freeney.  Really enjoying the expressions on all athletes regardless of where they finish.

Do not know what is happening in other states but a parade for the Paralympians is being held at Lunch time next Friday in Brisbane. If parades  are replicated in other states and we have the opportunity lets get out and show our support for these real inspirational heroes.
