Dec 9, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC – The Congressional Olympic and Paralympic Caucus recently participated in a United States Olympic Committee screening of Warrior Champions.

The Warrior Champions documentary highlights the extraordinary efforts of an inspiring group who went from serving our nation in uniform to aspiring to represent it in paralympic competition. As little as a year after losing limbs and suffering paralysis fighting in Iraq, these veterans set out to do what many thought impossible - compete in the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing.

Special guests who attended this event included, Justin Widhalm, Wounded Warrior and 2012 Paralympic hopeful; Michelle Kwan, Two-Time Olympic Medalist 1998 & 2002, Figure Skating; and Scott Blackmun, Chief Executive Officer, U.S. Olympic Committee.
