When Camilla Fjeldheim Hovelsrud wrote a letters to the editor in Budstikka, which was printed also in the Newspaper, earlier this week she was not forberedet on how large the impression her story about his son's experiences in skiløypa would have.
Niåringen Gustav has Cerebral Palsy, and because of the injury he has poor balance, coordination and strength in the one side of the body.
In skiløypa he met the people who went over the skis and poles and came with profanity.
- People trampled over the skis of his, kicked away from the poles and pushed their way past, the mother said.
Hovelsrud tells Dagbladet that the feedback has been above all expectation.
It has taken a completely. Talked with Expressen which had caught up the post via Twitter, so they will make a case on it. Has also received many endorsements from well known and unknown. Petter Skinstad (son of Åge Skinstad) has contacted me. He was very involved in the matter and would come with a påskjønning to my son in the form of ski equipment. And so it was incredibly nice of Martin Johnsrud sundby's time, to contact. He had read the post, been terribly sad and gone and thought about it on the training trip. Afterwards, he played a video greeting to my son that we were sent via his brother. It was a very nice greeting to a child who needs it after this episode - completely unsolicited. He shall also send ski equipment, " says Fjeldheim Hovelsrud.AWE: Birgit Skarstein, from here Idrettsgallaen in Stavanger, roses Gustav and mother and hope they continue with the sport.

another One that really engaged is parautøver Birgit Skarstein. Even she is in Canada and getting ready to para-world ski CHAMPIONSHIP that begins this weekend. But the 29-year-old still has a burning passion for what 9-year-old with cerebral palsy have experienced.
I just want to say heia, heia, and stand on to Gustaf. He has ended up in the situation that he very early in life, must face things even adults find difficult. I think it is very cool that he just runs on and does not care about that he has other challenges than others.
Skarstein has been in a wheelchair since she was paralyzed in the legs after a epiduralbedøvelse didn't get out of the body as it was in 2009. Skarstein says she knows the feeling of vulnerability in not getting to things.
When I started after I got my injury, I felt not high hat. Just because one must do it in a different way and with another base. When to compensate it involves trial and error. Then it is much easier to do it if you are met with an outstretched hand and not a pointing finger. I know me again in the vulnerability of to not get to things, " says Skarstein of the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet.
Skarstein ask Gustav continued with what he likes and says that she hopes that he even also can be to see in it in a VM as she is, though it should be on skis or snowboard.
- He must continue to do what he likes to do, whether it is skiing or snowboarding. In fact, I had thought to send him a little thing and a greeting when I get home. He must not bend and lose heart for there are far more of us who cheer on him than the opposite, " says Skarstein.
It may seem to be a motivation also for nine-year-old Gustav. His mother tells him that he is very happy to drive with winter sports.
He thinks it's very cool. Especially cool because he thinks it is great fun to ski on. Even better, he is on a snowboard. He stands with friends once a week, then he's just as good as any other and does not experience handicapped. He is on Terje Håkonsens initiative funky snowboards that trains children with disabilities. Where is he on the utviklingslag, the goal is to come up at a good level for paraidrett, " says Hovelsrud to the Newspaper.hetset in skiløypa: - It is terrible Helps more to stand up
the Mother says that her son is not going to give up with skigåinga even though he got a beating of mishagsytringene and the poor behavior of many in the skiløypa.
- He has one life motto: I give me never! There he started with when he was going to learn how to ride a bike as a 3-year-old. We were told that he was not going to do it. He struggled with the balance that is typical for people with cerebral palsy. But he trained and trained and managed it in the end.
- do you Think it will help if more people with disabilities dare to stand up with that they experience verbal abuse?
Many people who have disabilities meetings as resistance that, in the end, not orcs. They must have focus in a slightly different location. One sweeps it away by thinking that those who behave like that, it is they who have a disability. But I funksjonsfrisk becomes bored to me, this is fine people who do not deserve it. Very many that do much good, but this post was meant to get up the eyes of the average Norwegian. People with disabilities should be able to participate in sport on an equal basis as others.
Skarstein ends with praising the mother for that she dared to stand up, with the experience from the skiløypa.
- That she dares to stand up and say from the way that the next child will have it here are brave and strong. It is extra nice to see that the community rises up and takes the settlement, the roses Skarstein.No, marka is not for any Debate ÅRUNGEN, AKERSHUS 20180903 Birgit Skarstein coach ahead of the world cup in rowing in Plovdiv in Bulgaria.
