Perhaps you’re aware that New Zealanders, in general, are mad about rugby.
Perhaps you’re not so aware that New Zealand is currently the Paralympic Wheelchair Rugby Champions. And perhaps you aren’t aware that the World Championships are being held in Christchurch this week.
These guys are awesome. If you’re a kiwi, then hopefully you tune in to Sunday morning TV and watch Attitude. If you do, then you are already familiar with the Wheel Blacks coach – Grant Sharman, and a member of the Wheel Black squad – Curtis Palmer.
You will also be aware that these guys train 20 hours a week, do the whole sports psychology thing, and are full on athletes. And finally, they are getting some media recognition for all the hard work, effort and success.
If you live in or near Christchurch, then get out and spend a couple of hours watching top class sportsmen going for a world championship. They are up against the USA, their bogey team, and no doubt would welcome as much local support as they can muster.
Go the Wheel Blacks !
