Photo of the week

At the time, nothing sounded more contrary than "sports" wheelchair. The two words didn't even seem to go together ... and for many years they didn't. This week's Throwback Thursday cover is from our February 1977 issue. On the cover: Steve Scott of San Jose, Calif., is caught mid-stride in his "racing" sports chair. Note the low back, semi-pneumatic front tires, axle placement. Photo John Brennan.
