There’s great excitement in the Rohan household, San Francisco, as we cheer on Mark Rohan (my husband’s nephew).
Mark will represent Ireland and compete in two races in the London Paralymics 2012. Tomorrow, September 5th, Mark will compete in the hand-cycling Time Trial event and on Friday, September 7th, in the Road Race. Mark is the only athlete to win six World Cup hand-cycling events in a row and he’s a strong contender for a medal in this Paralympics.
We’ve already arranged our party for Friday night with friends to celebrate Mark’s great accomplishments, because regardless of how he does over the next few days, he’s already a champion in heart and in spirit.
