ATLANTApix: Palalympic Legacy

Paralympic Legacy
"Paralympic Legacy"
Nestled in the northeast corner of Centennial Olympic Park is a paralympics monument named Paralympic Legacy. The monument stands in honor of the 3,310 athletes who participated in the 1996 Paralympic Games held only two weeks after the Centennial Olympic Games hosted in Atlanta, Georgia.

The athletes, representing 103 countries and whose names are inscribed on the four granite columns surrounding a taller spiral sculpture, set 268 new world records that year.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
