My Life Champion

Rabah Kino on the slopes in Idaho.
Rabah Kino is an accomplished Special Olympics skier from Lebanon. His mother, Rita Kino, said she introduced him to the sport of skiing when he was 4 by tucking him between her legs as she skied downhill.

In 2009, he competed in the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Boise, Idaho, USA, a magnificent achievement for himself and his family.

"My son is my champion, my life champion," she said. "He has no limits, no frontiers. ... We are a blessed family to have him."
