“I’ve said many times let’s get rid of the ‘D’ word – ‘disability.’ Don’t replace it. Drop it from a great height. If you put the word ‘disability’ with the word ‘engine,’ it means it’s one that doesn’t work. So in people’s mentality a disabled person doesn’t function. We all have different levels of ability.”

Sir Philip Craven, president of the International Paralympic Committee, at a press conference on Oct. 15 discussing the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
