Winter learning journey Day 7 Bonus

Bonus: This year two new sports are being added to the Paralympic Games. They are canoeing and triathlon. In the triathlon the athletes must swim 750 metres, cycle for 20 kilometres, and then run for 5 kilometres. Paralympic athletes may also compete in other sports including archery, boccia, football, judo, powerlifting, rowing, sailing, swimming, sitting volleyball, track cycling, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair fencing, wheelchair rugby, and wheelchair tennis. To learn more about all of the Paralympic sports, please visit the 2016 Paralympic Games website.

Imagine that you are on the Paralympic Committee and you have been asked to create one new sport to add to the competition for this year. Use your awesome imagination to design a brand new Paralympic sport. Please remember that some of the athletes will not be able to walk or run and others may be blind or deaf. On your blog, please write:

  1. Hi Jerome,

    As a huge basketball fan, I like the fact that you have chosen the sport. I am just wondering how you might adapt the sport so that it can be played by people who have a physical disability. Perhaps one option might be to play a wheelchair version of the sport. What do you think of that idea?

    If you'd like to learn more wheelchair basketball, you can follow this link:

    It's quite a cool sport (but a lot harder than it looks)! I once tried wheelchair basketball and my arms got really sore really quickly. I had trouble dribbling after awhile because the muscles in my arms had turned to jelly!

    Cheers, Rachel :)
