Mural in Amsterdam honours Dutch paralympians


This mural by the brothers Stein and Wessel Koning honours the Dutch athletes currently participating in the Paralympic Games in London.

It depicts archer Johan Wildeboer, runner and long jumper Suzan Verduijn, runner Marlou van Rhijn, football player Dennis Straatman and tennis player Jiske Griffioen. The mural is an initiative of Marc de Hond, himself a disabled basketball player who failed to qualify for the games.

Originally this wall, just off the Amsterdamse Bos, contained a mural by the De Koning brothers depicting athletes from the regular Olympics, but it was defaced by vandals.
