Raising the Bar: New Horizons in Disability Sports
By Artemis A. W. Joukowsky III and Larry Rothstein
Preface by Christopher Reeve



Power, Speed, Agility: these qualities are necessary to any athlete. Perhaps more than any other public sports events, athletes competing with disabilities challenge us to think about these qualities and about athleticism in new and exhilarating ways. Raising the Bar is an intimate, visually rich, elegantly produced portrayal of the international community of disability sports, featuring the words and portraits of athletes and members of the international disability sports community, including Kirk Bauer, Sarah Billmeier, Shea Cowart, Jean Driscoll, Pam Fernandes, Béatrice Hess, Emily Jennings, Fung Ying Ki, Richard Powell, Ann Romney, Marlon Shirley, Chris Waddell, Sara Will, and many others.
