This Motivating Video Featuring Paralympic Games Athletes Reminds Us That There Are No Excuses

The Par­a­lympic Games are all about over­com­ing chal­lenges to cel­e­brate fan­tas­tic athleticism—no excuses.

Spon­sor Sam­sung Mobile has cre­at­ed “What’s Your Prob­lem? Sport Does­n’t Care” as a reminder that while there will always be chal­lenges, every­thing can be over­come. Fea­tur­ing Par­a­lympians across var­i­ous sport­ing disciplines—Nordic and down­hill ski­ing, snow­board­ing, biathlon, and sledge hockey—this video show­cas­es the incred­i­ble phys­i­cal­i­ty of each sport, along with the day-to-day dif­fi­cul­ties that the ath­letes face.

It turns out that those dif­fi­cul­ties are the same ones we all deal with, regard­less of our sport of choice, phys­i­cal abil­i­ties, or the lev­el at which we prac­tice. We all have to con­tend with unco­op­er­a­tive weath­er, unfa­vor­able sched­ules, and sore mus­cles. But we also share a deep love for our respec­tive sports: if the rewards did­n’t out­weigh the neg­a­tives, we would have giv­en up a long time ago.
