Wheelchair fencing training in Minsk

epa03170940 Belarussian wheelchair fencer Nikolay Bezyazychny (R) attends a training session in preparation for the 2012 London Paralympic Games in a gym on the outskirts of Minsk, Belarus, 04 April 2012. Bezyazychny, who has been in love with fencing since childhood, was wheelchair-bound after a car accident. However, this did not prevent him from fencing and in 2005 he started his career as a wheelchair fencer. Bezyazychny won the silver medal in the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games. Wheelchair Fencing has been part of the Paralympic Games programme since 1960 and is competed with all three weapons in both individual and team events. Each wheelchair fencer is fixed to a frame, with footwork being replaced by torso and arm movement. EPA/TATYANA ZENKOVICH
