AMAZING ATHLETES WHO OVERCAME BARRIERS
In this article, the author explains Bethany's determination and passion for surfing. After loosing her arm to a 14ft. tiger shark, Bethany wanted wanted nothing more than to get back into the water. She was surfing again after just one month! She continued pursuing her dream of becoming a professional surfer. Now, she is an amazing surfer and placed second in the ASP 2009 World Junior Championships!
Dempsey likes hitting people which sometimes gets him in trouble. He and his wife told interviewers that he likes to hit people and that he didn't care. One time, Tom punched his coach and got kicked of the team! Tom then became a kicker/defensive lineman but was beat up by bigger players, so he decided to focus on kicking. Even after becoming strictly a kicker, he continued to hit people.
What I Think About "It's Not Just A Game"
"When we start moving and having fun we feel good about ourselves." While playing sports our energy level raises. Plus, sports act as antidepressants. Sports also increase the brain's level of endorphins, boosting your mood.
-Both Bethany and Tom are missing limbs
-The sport they play would be easier with the limbs they are missing
-Overcame their barriers and are now an inspiration for many people
-Ignored the fact that they are different and did their best at their sport everyday
-Tom was a kicker on an NFL football team
-Born without toes on right foot
-Tom needed his toes to kick
-Often got kicked off teams for hitting
-Bethany is professional surfer
-Lost arm in shark attack
-Bethany needs her arm for certain surfing tricks
-She surprisingly had the fear of NOT being able to surf again
