When I went for a meet in Long Beach once, I noticed an interesting little chair-like thingy in the pool when we were warming up.. I asked my coach what was it and he told me it was handicap pool lifts. I was quite amazed because we never really have such things in Malaysia, especially in public pools. I never actually seen anyone use it before but its certainly really interesting.
I know I don't know too much about disability because I don't really have any friends who are disabled but I truly respect and admire these people for working doubly hard to lead a normal life. So please take care and keep up the good work. =)
