Spent 7 days photographing so many sports for Sports-n-Spokes magazine and the US Paralympic Committee. Great city, great weather, amazing events.
Table Tennis - Always a favorite as the action and facial expressions are together.
Wheelchair Basketball – Quite a letdown. Team USA blew out everyone in both men’s and women’s competition. They’ll be the underdogs in Rio against the European teams.
Wheelchair Rugby – Columbia impressed me in this opening match. Lots of attitude and speed. Thy would shock everyone with an impressive upset to take a bronze medal.
The talk of the games was USA vs Canada in rugby. Team USA would scratch out a double-overtime win in match play only to lose by four in the sold-out final match and end up with silver.
Wheelchair Tennis - Tennis is great to shoot, but mid day sun just kills the color and makes me miss table tennis. Arizonan, Kaitlynn Verfueth came up short in women’s final to her rival from Brazil.
Track & Field – Always my favorite. Love the emotion.
