Dylan Alcott of Australia talks about his Tokyo 2020 experience right after winning the quad singles gold title in wheelchair tennis:

“I could summarise my whole Paralympic experience: it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.

I love what the Paralympics represents, it represents more than sport, it represents people with disability, succeeding in what they love, it gives us purpose, it gives us a passion, it changes cultures, changes perceptions.

“We hope we are changing those negative stigmas that people have about us. People think we can't do anything, but we can and not just play sports, we can work, we can get jobs, we can be teachers, we can be mums, we can be dads, we can travel, we can be partners, we can have kids, we can do so much. And people think we can’t. The Paralympics represents all that. I can't say enough how much I'm love it.”
