The country of Russia celebrated a very successful Olympic and Paralympic Games and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Sochi. For us, the Paralympic Games were transformative. We saw many examples of courage, strength, humanity and the belief that all things are possible, especially in the face of great adversity.
We met some amazing people and some colorful characters during our time in Sochi and you'll meet some of them during the show.
You will receive a small taste of what we experienced during our time in Sochi. On our way back to the U.S. we spent a long layover in Moscow and you’ll hear about some places you see during a short visit to moscow when Russian-American singer/songwriter Marina Verenikina joins us to talk about her hometown. We had the pleasure of visiting some of the places that she mentions.

Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius (/p?s't?ri?s/; born 22 November 1986) is a South African sprint runner. Although both of Pistorius' legs were amputated below the knee when he was 11 months old, he competes in events for single below-knee amputees and for able-bodied athletes. At the 2011 World Championships in Athletics, Pistorius became the first amputee to win an able-bodied world track medal. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Pistorius became the first double leg amputee to participate in the Olympics when he entered the men's 400 metres and 4 × 400 metres relay races. At the 2012 Summer Paralympics, Pistorius won gold medals in the men's 400 metre race and in the 4 × 100 metres relay, setting world records in both events. He also took a silver in the 200 metres race, having set a world record in the semifinal.
In the early morning of Thursday, 14 February 2013, Pistorius' girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was shot and killed at Pistorius' Pretoria home.
The Paralympic Games are a major international multi-sport event where athletes with a physical disability compete; this includes athletes with mobility restrictions, amputations, blindness, and cerebral palsy.

Elizabeth Wright is a Paralympic Medallist, Motivational Speaker, Academic, and Activist. Born in Sydney, Australia with Congenital Limb Deficiency. Elizabeth is missing half her right arm and leg and requires a prosthetic leg to allow mobility.
Elizabeth was raised with a positive attitude and firm self-belief that has taken her from strength to strength. With determination and a go-getter attitude, Elizabeth has achieved much in her life and is continuing to achieve, regardless of the obstacles and barriers she comes across.
At the age of thirteen, she decided that she was going to swim in the Paralympic games. She achieved this goal only three years later, competing at the 1996 Atlanta Paralympic Games, and then the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games. In all Elizabeth won three medals at the Paralympics, a bronze in the 50m Butterfly at the ’96 Paralympics, and a silver in the 400m Freestyle and a bronze in the 4 x 50m freestyle relay at her home games in 2000, as well as held multiple world records in both long and short course races.
Elizabeth has written her autobiography – “Ditch the Arm, Keep the Leg – a personal story of success,” and she continues to challenge herself physically, having decided to walk across Spain next year in one go.
