Column: My Paralympic games : water ball with Hertha

of The 2. April will go down in the history of the city as a special. Because for the first Time Herthinho and a polar bear mascot ventured into a real animal Park enclosure. Not too long, and it was better that way, because, after all, just the name Hertha baptized young animal came up with mother Tonya cheerful in the fresh air under a beautiful sun trudging. The small Berlin polar bear took the time to dribble to their three green rings in the water, and then romped camera with the blue of Hertha Berlin polar bears of the ball in the direction of the moat, to the landed Round, plautz, on the Wet.

With Hertha CEO Ingo Schiller from the new polar bear sponsor club was still short about football and we've chatted about Liverpool and Mohamed Salah, the, of course, not only many Newcomers to the city boys from all over the Arab world totally cool find, but the Hertha, in principle, like to have – but it costs just as much as large parts of the Berlin team.

So a lot of non-disabled Sport needs to be on days like this, even in a column like this. Then freshly motivated more serious turn. After all, some are in the sun, and the other in the shade. Only on Tuesday has once again become clear that people with disabilities in Sport, inclusion and participation are still concentrated involuntarily. Because in Germany Degener is of the view that the lawyer Theresia large pent-up demand for the implementation of the UN disability Convention, meldetet the news Agency epd. The researcher referred to studies by the UN Committee for people with disabilities, has dealt with the Situation in 70 of the 177 States that have ratified the Convention.

ten years after the adoption of the Convention there is, especially in the areas of education, mobility and Housing, significant deficiencies, said the Professor of law and Disability Studies at the Protestant University of applied Sciences Rhineland - Westphalia-Lippe in Bochum, Germany. Degener also Chairman of the UN Committee on the rights of persons with disabilities. The proportion of children and young people with disabilities who do not attend regular school, but to support schools, have been reduced nationwide by only 0.6 percent. The Federal Republic was also far from being, as originally intended, to be able to 2022, a barrier-free public transport offer, criticized the lawyer. The use of Bus and train but got to the social part.

to satisfy The many Paralympioniken only. It's a Yes, but a Bus? How many wheelchairs can fit in a coach? You can't answer the question? Exactly. In General, none. Disabled athletes are now hoping to Autonomous Driving, which would also provide amputees and people with a new freedom. In the shadow of the other, the Guild of the bus driver, the Trucker, taxi driver, a huge loss are there again. Quite apart from the fact that these computer-controlled Mobile are not able to all the eventualities with, for example, if in high Canada a bear in front of the hood

Where it's running, the right to a self-determined life?

Many disabled athletes have also been in Northern Europe by traffic accidents in a completely different reality of life catapulted. After that, a hard time the following often, also with thoughts of suicide. A fortiori, if one lives in isolation. In the local authorities has doubled, according to a new Survey, but the number of disabled people on an outpatient basis, so your home will be cared for. Where is the right to a self-determined life? Not everyone can be as creative and as strong as about Marianne Buggenhagen, who slipped at the Paralympics, the stair railing down, if the Lift was working. Positive effects Degener however, in the labour market. The unemployment rate among disabled people has gone down. In addition, have also increased at the universities, the number of disabled students. During the past ten years, it has been possible to clarify the issue of the rights of people with disabilities in society. If I may say so myself, cough, a certain amount of Paralympics newspaper of the daily mirror and the German Statutory accident insurance has quite its share.

And because I'm as old Knut Groupie today, when typing in the spell of the small Hertha-bear: her Ball was no longer unused in the water. Zoo boss Andreas Knieriem said: "it is not a water player of the year." He's right.
