Blind Paralympic champion prays for protection of human life

.- During the festivities in Salamanca, Spain, triple Paralympic gold medalist Enrique Sanchez-Guijo asked for the intercession of the Blessed Mother for “the protection of life, inherent in every human being, from beginning to end.”

Sánchez-Guijo, who competed in the Paralympic Games of Barcelona in 1992, Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney in 2000, said that together with the right to life, the “right to live in freedom, banishing all forms of terrorism and oppression,” must also be respected.

The former athlete participated in a Mass at the Cathedral of Salamanca, during which he prayed for the families of Spain. 

Born in the Spanish city of Bejar, he won three gold medals and set the world record in the 200 meter dash.

He also won gold medals in European championships in 1993, 1995, 1997, as well silver and gold medals in the world championships of 1994 and 1998.
