Boy with no arms can swim – level 1
Abbas Karimi is from Afghanistan. He is 14 years old. He was born with no arms. But he has a big dream. He wants to win a gold medal for swimming in the next Paralympics. If he gets the help which he needs, he will be the first person from Afghanistan to represent his country as a swimmer. He wants to be a symbol for all people who have some problems with their body.
Long wars and a bad situation in Afghanistan aren’t good for people like Abbas who want to play sports. But Abbas has a new hope in his life. The next Paralympics will be in Brazil in 2016.
Interesting words: Paralympics (Olympic Games for people who have some problems with their bodies), represent (be symbol of something).
