Sports as Subculture; Goalball
Asya's blindness has never made her any less of an athlete. She never used her blindness as an excuse for losing. Most to all of her opponents are blind as well but she still wanted to win as bad as any other athlete in her position would. Asya also didn't let her blindness effect her competitiveness. She never had to worry that being blind would be a disadvantage in her sport. She also met her future wife Jen who is also blind and enjoys goalball. Asya didn't just decide to play goalball because she wanted to represent the U.S. in the Paralympics but, because it was a sport available for her to try that she had interest in. In the video Asya says she's ready to win and she plans on winning, and she does.
