As Leon sped around corners and through local communities, the visual of him cycling on a high-tech and somewhat strange looking piece of equipment, turned every head — faces of perplexity, melting into complete joy. Leon on that bike forced viewers to rethink their ideas about disability; he demonstrated in that moment the ability and power of people living with a disability.

Leon competed in the Parapan American Games in Mexico in 2011, and is now part of the first-ever Haitian team competing in the Paralympics in London. His story is no longer just about his own life — he has risen to the status of symbol and hero. The 2012 Paralympic Games begin tomorrow, Wednesday August 29th and run through September 9th. Tune in and cheer on Leon and his fellow Haitian teammates Josue Cajuste and Nephtalie Jean Louis, and witness another significant and historic moment of change — for Haitians and all those living with disabilities in the developing world.
