Everyone regrets the way it was handled People of determination Both during preparations and before traveling and even when they return to their homeland, they brought with them great victories.

This prompted the Minister of Youth and Sports, Abdel Razzaq Sabbak, to comment, saying: "Shocked by the way the athletes participating in the Paralympic Games were received, what really shocks me is how the ministry may not be aware of their arrival and how things are not arranged in order to allocate a bus that suits their needs and lives up to the diligence they have made for Algeria in Tokyo".

Society has not yet understood them

The Algerian world champion in karate, Hamza Osmani, believes that the matter is due to the view of society as a whole for people with special needs.

The world champion Osmani told the site "Sky News Arabia": "There is a look of contempt towards people special needsThis explains the lack of interest of the officials in them and considering them second-class athletes, even though the effort they make is twice as much as what healthy athletes do on the field.".

Regarding this particular problem, Osmani said: "Note well how we humans deal with people with special needs, our children do not play with them, we do not sit with them in cafes, we feel ashamed when accompanying them, all this negative view must change and the matter needs concerted efforts".

Hamza regretted the way sports laws in Algeria deal with the rights of people with special needs, and said:"Why the scholarship for healthy athletes is twice the grant for people with special needs".

Sports coach Thamri Muhammad Al-Amin confirms that this victory carries with him the story of real heroes. He told Sky News Arabia: "Everyone has a different story, we were expecting a good result but not to the point of breaking the world record".

Al-Amin stressed that what people with special needs have achieved is no less important than the achievements of healthy people, and they must be given the full opportunity to live, provide conditions for them and overcome difficulties.

The Algerian sports coach said: "Unfortunately, there is a lack of interest in them and this is a lesson for all of us".
