The eyes of victory

The viewing deck at Joinville's highest point offers a beautiful view over the southern city. It was there that Gerson Knittel, the Brazilian Paralympic Committee's first athlete-guide and 11-time medallist, received the Paralympic flame on 5 September. “I worked for almost 20 years as a volunteer and I'm happy that I've been remembered for today. I think that I helped a little in writing Brazilian Paralympic sport history. Very often, the visually-impaired runner will lack some confidence when the time comes to compete,” Knittel explained. “Our function as guide is to pass on courage so the athlete can achieve victory.”
