All of these athletes had to overcome a big trauma and begin a new different life in a new different body. Now they all compete successfully in the international arena – Jonas became tenth in Rio, Kęstutis and Ramunė were forth, Mindaugas Bilius won the discus throw silver and became a Paralympic champion in the shot put.
However, usually their competition does not end at the stadium. Fighting against stereotypes and fears is still one of the main these athletes concerns.
The whole story about Ramunė, Mindaugas, Jonas and Kęstutis is a part of our multimedia project "Will to Win“.
