-Aliewine-a-giant-has-fallen.html title Edna Aliewine, a giant has fallen publisher LA Sentinel date 2011-07-07 accessdate 2012-10-14 * Watts Summer Games The L.A Watts Summer Games started in 1968 and were held at Locke High School. The L.A Watts Summer Games are a three-day athletic tournament that brings together more than 5,000 students from 200 California schools. Almost 200,000 youth have competed in the games over the past 30 years. The Watts Summer Games have a scholarship program for the students that are dedicated to the community and have awarded more than $300,000 since their inception in 1992. *'''R Line''' - Hancock Park to East Los Angeles (East Los Angeles, California); by way of 3rd Street, Vermont Avenue, 7th Street, Boyle Avenue, and Whittier Boulevard. *'''S Line''' - Watts (Watts, Los Angeles) to East Hollywood; by way of Central Avenue, Florence Avenue, Avalon Boulevard, Vernon Avenue, Vermont Street, 3rd Street, and Western Avenue (Western Avenue (Los Angeles)). *'''U Line''' - Nevin to West Adams; by way of Central Avenue, Jefferson Boulevard, Vermont Street, and 27th Street. Elaboration David LaChapelle opens ''Rize'' with a disclaimer that reads, "The footage in this film has not been sped up in any way." This is a necessary thing to note because the general movements and rapid body contortions that are characteristic of krump dance are done with such speed and intensity that they have been described as mind boggling at the least. LaChapelle then proceeds to open the film with footage of the Watts Riots that happened in the Watts (Watts, Los Angeles) neighborhood of Los Angeles, California in 1965. This upheaval was in response to oppressive acts done by white police officers onto a black motorist by the name of Marquette Frye in August of that year. This incident unleashed a long-brewing hatred and anger over the black oppression in America, which erupted into full-blown riots throughout South Central (South Los Angeles). The riots lasted a total of five days and at the cost of 34 lives and 40 billion dollars in property damage. Since then, other conflicts and feuds were started between many of the remaining sets of the Crips gang. It is a popular misconception that Crips sets feud only with Bloods. In reality, they fight each other — for example, the Rollin' 60s and 83rd Street Gangster Crips have been rivals since 1979. In Watts, Los Angeles, the Grape Street Watts Crips and the P Jay Crips have feuded so much that the P Jay Crips even teamed up with the local Bloods set, the Bounty Hunter Bloods, to fight against the Grape Street Crips.

The Games were open only to athletes in wheelchairs. At the 1976 Summer Games (1976 Summer Paralympics), athletes with different disabilities were included for the first time at a Summer Paralympics. With the inclusion of more disability classifications the 1976 Summer Games expanded to 1,600 athletes from 40 countries. The 1988 Summer Paralympics in Seoul, South Korea, was another milestone for the Paralympic movement. It was in Seoul that the Paralympic Summer Games were held directly after the Olympic Summer Games (1988 Summer Olympics), in the same host city, and using the same facilities. This set a precedent that was followed in 1992 (1992 Summer Paralympics) and 1996 (1996 Summer Paralympics). It was eventually formalized in an agreement between the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 2001. DePauw and Gavron (2005) p. 92 The 1992 Winter Paralympics were the first Winter Games to use the same facilities as the Winter Olympics (1992 Winter Olympics). Since 1960, the Paralympic Games have taken place in the same year as the Olympic Games.
