    It takes some power to jump like that with one leg (last pic).

    i hope they get some indoor training before 2008. With hardwood and mat, that guy should able to jump higher. Grass lawn is kinda soft for launching but good for absorbing impact.

    if you think about how difficult it is for us to play badminton normally, it must take so much more effort when you're disabled. they look like they're having fun though, and exercising which is the most important thing after all.
