Hassan Writes Letter to International Paralymic Committee


Governor Maggie Hassan sent a letter on Monday to the International Paralympic Committee objecting to their ruling making Victoria Arlen of Exeter ineligible to participate in the International Paralympic Committee World Swimming Championships in Montreal, Canada. Hassan called the decision unfair and against the values the organization aims to promote. “…the basis for ruling Victoria ineligible , the possibility that she might one day be able to resume use of her legs is nothing short of disgraceful, undermining the very values of courage, inspiration, determination and equality that the International Paralympic Committee aims to promote.” NH US Senators Shaheen and Ayotte also wrote to the International Paralympic Committee expressing their disappointment with the decision.
