Are disabled athletes becoming the new global voice of disability rights?
If the Paralympics are the pinnacle of athletic participation for athletes with disabilities shouldn't all major sporting events at least aspire to full accessibility for spectators with disabilities? The 12 cities hosting FIFA's 2014 soccer World Cup are a chance to build a new generation of accessibility and inclusive business practices into the very DNA of a country and a sport.
Will the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro be accessible? Will they leave a legacy of accessible infrastructure in Brazil and a culture of inclusion beyond?
It can be.
