Canada's sitting volleyball team ready to take on the world (from Vancouver Sun)
VANCOUVER — At seven-foot-two, with a deep baritone voice, Greg Stewart is a presence just about anywhere he goes.
But on this day, in a gym in Surrey, B.C., he stands out — figuratively and certainly literally as he lumbers after wayward volleyballs — in a gigantic way.
Prosthetic limbs and athletic bags are strewn around the perimeter of the gym. Young men and women, most missing all or part of a leg, are sliding across the floor on their behinds, stretching for a dig or setting up a teammate for a spike of the ball over a low-slung net.
