The Para-Cycling World Championship Opening Ceremonies

Since this baby has decided to wait for Labor Day, I’ve been out and about with vecmamma Inga and the boys here in Greenville taking advantage of the last days of summer. As I wrote in this previous post, the 2014 Para-Cycling World Championships have come to town, and the Opening Ceremonies and Parade of Nations was Wednesday evening at the Peace Center Aphitheatre.

Athletes from 40 countries are participating in the games, having overcome disabilities and handicaps to excel at this physically demanding sport. We welcomed Oskars Gailišs and team from Latvia, who will be competing today in time trials and Sunday in the road races.

The USA team paraded through, 30 athletes strong. We can’t wait to see them all in action!

The official website, including live streaming of the weekend’s events can be found here.

  1. Impressive little group of Latvians! I'm sure Oskars appreciated the support.
