TAMPA — You’ll see the blade of a prosthetic leg, rapidly striking the surface in support of a runner.

You’ll see wheelchairs colliding into each other in support of parapalegics.

You’ll see amputees swim faster than you ever imagined, and people do more with one arm than some can with two.

But if you only see the technical tools these athletes use in competition, if you see their disabilities instead of their abilities, you won’t really see the Department of Defense’s Warrior Games when they launch Friday in Tampa Bay.
