Most people cannot imagine what it’s like to play a sport with vision loss or blindness, but thousands of individuals manage remarkable feats on the field or ice. Playing sports while living with blindness takes dedication and determination.
Kurt Sloop is a goalball athlete and a board member of the Metro Washington Association of Blind Athletes.

The two athletes sat down for an interview to talk about how people who are blind or visually impaired can get involved with sports.
