My Life Champion
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."

I made this video while I was a student at University of Miami volunteering for Special Olympics' 2009 World Games documentation team.
