Jamaicans and global citizens will be able to view on the website of the Jamaica Paralympic Association (JPA) “behind the scenes” life with Jamaica’s Paralympians during the Rio Paralympic Games scheduled to begin with the much anticipated scintillating Opening Ceremony on September 7.
The grandeur of medal and record achievements are more readily understood and appreciated when the character of the athlete is expressed in life behind the glitter of the starting blocks or the circle where inspiration drives ambition and aspirations.
In Rio, the lens of the JPA’s website will give you an insight of and inside to the athletes without being intrusive and an understanding of what impels our Paralympians to go for personal success and national glory as they stand on the threshold of competition. They will bring a microscopic gaze on the mettle that allows our athletes with disabilities to become able sports men and women and international achievers.
Kevin Brown, a Website Specialist and the JPA’s master at the control, will travel with the team to Rio in ensuring that Jamaica and the world enjoy the “in camera” moments which reflect character and the will to succeed.
JPA boss, Christopher Samuda, gives this vantage view “thumbs up” for as he puts it: “We often see the end product without having a true and deep appreciation of the constituents which really tell of character, create ability and foretell success ”
Coach Neville Sinclair, a well-decorated Paralympic athlete in his day, expresses: “The mind and heart of an athlete before competition are complex Emotions and thoughts run wild with energy but have to be controlled and conditioned”
The website will portray daily the ethos of the Paralympic Games and a personal study from the perspective of our athletes and then officials and with it somewhat of a sense of “where it all begins”.
