Olympics 1984 Los Angeles ABC Profile – Sailing With Superman

DOG ASIDE:

How often does anyone get to sail with Superman….but that is exactly what ABC’s Kathleen Sullivan got to do….as evidenced by this video by this video….and even though the video sounds like it had been recorded under water….it really gives a good view of sailing with actor Christopher Reeves…..the man who was known around the world as Superman (at least in the movies)…..who had been sailing since he was 6 years old….even competitively throughout his life….for Reeves was a true sportsman and athlete….for it was his being thrown from a horse while riding that caused him to be a paraplegic the latter years of his life.
