chantal petitclerc in new mobility

My feature on Chantal Petitclerc in New Mobility is out. If you're interested, you can read it here.

Like my recent story on Canadian MP Steven Fletcher, this is written for a wheelchair-using audience, so hopefully the trite "isn't it great what people with disabilities can do" angle is absent.

Petitclerc is New Mobility's 2007 Person of the Year, the first who is not a US citizen. My quest to bring Canadian content to New Mobility and Kids On Wheels continues!

Writing about Petitclerc was really fun. She's a fascinating person, certainly the most well-rounded athlete I've ever interviewed. This is a cover story, so I'm eager to see her beautiful smile lighting up the cover. I haven't even received my copies yet!
