Congratulations on placing in the contest. Good job with this interesting write. It's hard enough to win such sporting events without the additional burden of a handicap. Overcoming such tragedies is a triumphant success for everybody, especially the participant who has worked so hard. Marilyn

    Thank you so much Marilyn for reading and for reviewing. It was fun to create this and I think it had a lot to do with the fact that I have been watching the Paralympics. They are always more enjoying that the regular Olympics because I see the challenge for the athletes as much more severe. I really appreciate your comments.

What a beautiful story, very easy introduction to follow. Characters easy to follow in actual story. The story line of a determined young inspired and driven by skiing and she was hoping for bronze and ended up with gold. Great ending. I love it

Sounds like a true story. Good story to encourage anyone to overcome difficulties.
I did find it hard to follow the number of skiers and grading system. I had to re-read it to figure it out. That's my only nit-pick. Good luck.

I think this is a good entry for the Reactions writing prompt.
You've told a good story here about a girl determined to succeed despite her crippling accident.
Good luck to you with the competition.

A couple of typos maybe?
is really experience - 'experienced'
seems to be turn for, - 'four'?

I enjoyed reading this post. I just love stories of triumph especially victories involving differently-abled persons. Their endurance and stamina to win gold is truly remarkable. Thanks for this amazing write.

You developed a great story with a truly unexpected finish. You set us up to think she would be winning the bronze, and she won the gold. I would like to mention that in the 8th paragraph, it reads "two of three wiped out.. seems to be turn "four". Thanks for a great read!! Well done.

Certainly a very unusual story, but very well delivered in all ways! I frankly cannot think of anything to offer that might improve this work in any way but thank this author indeed, for a very nice read! HIS GRAYNESS; Vance

This speaks surprising news; reactions of simplistic but bizarre in the occasion, despite her performance, passion carried since her four in skiing, judges had to re-evaluate for a consensus, at last Miss Nancy in Gold position, ability over disability recognized; well written, well done; thank you for sharing this with us; good luck with the contest.

An excellent photo of gold medals. I watched television on the Paralympics. They are so good. You fulfilled the request of the prompt: this girl Nancy won gold ad was over the moon. I liked your introduction, but then out of the blue it becomes a script. I did not think that was your best move. Still well done, and best wishes for the prompt.

    Thank you for reading and then taking the time to review. I really appreciate your kind comments and your keen observations. Do you think it would read better if I moved the history part to after the script and added a sentence to reflect it was about her history? Oh and thank you for the good luck wishes for the contest.
