“Going for Gold” and Other Athletics

Listen (28 min)

Going For Gold: This is Kamilla Ryding’s quest.  In 2008, she and her Danish goalball team fell just shy of this goal at the Paralympics in Beijing.

Ryding and Team Denmark are back on the court at the Paralympic Games in London this August.  We’ll talk to Kamilla about what goalball means to her and how athletics integrate with the rest of her life.


There’s many opportunities for athletic endeavors for people with disabilities in the Bay.

We talk to Greg Milano, cycling director at Bay Area Outreach and Recreational Program (BORP) who says, you don’t have to be chasing a gold medal to participate in accessible sports and recreation.  

Leah Gardner hosts.
