“When I was young I had many dreams and hope–to become a soldier of the Korean People`s Army, to become a university student who studies at the palace of science, to become an excellent pilot who defends the blue sky of my country and to become an athlete who can cause the flag of our Republic to be hoisted in the sky of other countries.However, I gave up my dreams since I lost my one leg because of an accident. Whenever I saw my schoolmates join the army, enter the universities or start working at factories and other workplaces I felt disappointed, only sitting beside the window like a bird with broken wings. But what gave me hope of a new life was the Paralympics.   The game infused a fresh courage on me who had once thought that I had to live all my life depending on a walking stick. It also helped me to have my dream of becoming an athlete come true.   Thanks to benevolent care of my motherland I became a professional athlete with disability and took part in the international Paralympics. And now I am learning to my heart`s content through on-line education at the department of economics of the Kim Il Sung University. Everybody says in astonishment that such a disabled person like me became an athlete yesterday and a university student today.”That is what Kim Jong Hyon, a disabled athlete of the Korean Sports Association of the Disabled, wrote in his diary with the joy of having become a university student. Bearing deep in his mind the affection of the motherland, he is now studying hard while improving his physical and technical ability. The disabled athlete has now become a university student.
