Louis Riccardi of Nutley does not view his wheelchair as a disability.
Louis Riccardi of Nutley won gold in the archery event, and that was only the start to his wildly successful week at the National Junior Disability Championships in Chicago.
Instead, it’s just another tool to succeed in a number of sports. In some sports, in fact, he doesn’t even need it at all.
Riccardi performed admirably at the 2010 National Junior Disability Championships in Chicago. Top athletes with disabilities from around the country competed for medals in seven different events.
The NJDC is considered the most prestigious national event for those ages 6-21 with physical and visual disabilities. It is a qualifier to the U.S. Paralympic Team and Riccardi will certainly get a look after his standout performance.
