The third workshop on the eve of the Opening of the UTS World Virtual Youth Festival was hosted by the IPC titled “I’mpossible and the Paralympic Movement.”
The participating numbers again reached the 2000 mark from all 5 continents showcasing that the youth of the world stand united for inclusion, equality and nondiscrimination, which are the tenets of the Festival.
The participants were part of a workshop full of energy, engagement and at the heart were two outstanding Olympians who inspired the crowd for so many reasons.
Three-time Paralympic gold medalist, Brett Scott, of Australia and British Paralympic skier, Anna Turney, put their hearts and energy with a focus on the Paralympic Values, the importance of fair play in sport and the IPC’s I’mpossible education program.
Participants from around the world engaged themselves in the discussions making group shots with a united message.
Brett Scott posted on his FB that he was so excited about the workshop stating, “I never expected this number and their engagement took my breath away.” He also mentioned that he was so grateful to be part of the day’s journey.
Anna, who inspired everyone with her story posted her happiness on this inspiring UTS workshop stating, “We all can make a difference and we are United Through Sports.”
But it is us who should be grateful to Brett and Anna and the IPC. Nothing is Impossible. It states it in the word and in both of you, I am possible!
