Normalization and Paralympic Performance

Recently the Paralympic closing ceremony acted as a coda to the past seven weeks of athletic prowess, celebrating the end of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. London bid farewell to roughly 14,000 Olympic athletes and 1,100 Paralympic athletes from 205 teams, whose hard work and dedication once again provided viewers with the best form of human drama.
