Paul sends greetings from Beijing, China, where he attended the 2008 Paralympic Games, held from September 6–17. He is a former member of the Board of Directors of the U.S. Olympic Committee and travels the world as president of the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation. He has been widely recognized for his forty years of contributions to the disabled sports community. A former weightlifter, Paul carried the torch at the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens, the 2002 Games in Salt Lake City, and the 1996 Games in Atlanta.

    Paul,

    I knew you were in Beijing but did not realize the magnitude of the trip. Outstanding.
