About I'mPOSSIBLE

This is a set of teaching materials developed by the International Paralympic Committee to share the appeal of the Paralympic Games with as many children as possible through school education. The name of the material, I'mPOSSIBLE, embodies what Paralympic athletes represent - that seemingly ‘Impossible’ things can be achieved (‘I'mpossible’) with some thinking and ingenuity.
