On a break from competition in the U.S. Paralympics Track and Field National Championships at Lakewood Stadium in Atlanta, athletes have a less formal pattycake battle in the shade on Saturday, July 1, 2006. Clockwise from left are Ryan Chalmers of New York, Maggie Frederick of Kennesaw, Doug Forbis of Illinois, and Dana Fink of Atlanta. The Paralympics event is the qualifier to gain entry on the U.S. Team for the International Paralympic Committee Athletics Championships in Switzerland.
