As an introduction, Karolina Pelendritou, swimmer and gold medallist of Beijing Paralympics 2008, and Coskun Ulusoy, Cypriot soccer player, shared their personal experience with the participants. Karolina Pelendritou insisted on the importance of covering the diversity of situations and practices as a way of fighting against exclusion.
