Amputee Football Team

It was amazing to see how the Amputee team trains, how superbly they actually manage to play football even though they lost one of their legs. These are the victims of civil war in Sierra Leone - usually the right limb was amputeed, since it is much ore difficult to balance on left leg, like it is more difficult to write with left hand for most of us. They were full of tears asking the rebels to cut their left leg, but unfortunately it did not work out every time. The horror of the civil war is now over and one can see on the faces that they really enjoy the game and give everything for the team. The best Amputee Football Team in Africa.

Equipment: Nikon D200, Nikon 12-24mm/f4, Nikon 35mm/f2D, Nikon 50/f1.8, Nikon 80-200 f/2.8 D
