One of Cuban representatives in Guadalajara Parapan Games IV showed that the important thing is to get up and move on. It is the rider Damian Lopez who despite suffering a fall and break his bike managed to finish the time trial.
First, a traffic diversion caused the impact of the cycle with a banner that broke the rear derailleur mail, and this caused a multiplication with a fixed output (53-14).
"At approximately five miles a fall suffered a collision with a police, resulting in a projection against the guardrail of the circuit, resulting in a hematoma in the right thigh and bruises on both upper extremities," Damian told about the bad experience.
However, he joined the race and later started to bleed. Just crossed the finish line at Plaza de Armas in its category ranked 12 C4-5.
"Only in my mind was closing, but I felt very bad," he said in the midst of public recognition.
He was treated by Dr. Cesar Augusto Villa Hospital and Dr. Naomi Cerviá, medical specialist delegation.
"He made ??an eight-point suture in the upper right limb and told him to advance in the right thigh. You will be assisted next Wednesday afternoon at the institution to evaluate its participation in upcoming competitions here, "said his coach Rafael Rodriguez.
After the incident presented himself at the tent of Mr. Octavio Londoño Cuba, president of the American Paralympic Committee, who spoke personally with Damian and recognized that it was worthy of admiration because they "get up and going was a feat."
"I admire you," he said Londoño after spending several minutes with him and other members of the Cuban delegation.Image:?
