Sports and the physically challenged: an encyclopedia of people, events, and organizations
This encyclopedia is a great resource for those wishing to learn more about the history of the disability sport movement. Research shows that little has been written about disability sports and the people, events and organizations that created the movement. Sports and physical activity transcend many barriers--thus, a book about disability sport and the people and events involved is likely to eradicate some of the barriers people with disabilities face, by creating a greater awareness and understanding of the abilities of people with disabilities. The comprehensive coverage of disability sport will be of interest to people in sports, recreation, and rehabilitation, as well as to those who are interested in learning more about it. The resource pages will interest people with disabilities, their families and friends. The work also includes a historical timeline of disability sport. Specific entries include: BLArchery BLInternational Blind Sports Federation BLCycling BLCerebral Palsy BLTim Nugent BLWheelchair Tennis BLParalympic Games BLSandy Dukat BLAmateur Sports Act of 1978 BLErgometer
