The Athletes

26 August 2015

We really like it when people with disabilities are portrayed in media without being in a show about disability, but instead as a normal part of our society.

SVT, Sweden's public broadcasting television is currently running a show called "Atleterna" (the Athletes) in which 8 girls and 8 boys go head to head in various sports to single out the best athlete. This season year one of the female athletes has a disability, but still competes on equal terms with the other athletes in the show.
