International Paralympic Committee President Sir Philip Craven has a simple but complicated wish: to fix the world so that he is recognized not as a user of a wheelchair, but as the person he is.

"We're not the disabled. I'm me, and you're you," Craven said in a recent interview.

"Let's fix planet Earth for the good of everyone. We've only got between 1 and 2 billion years left on this planet. Let's make the most of it."
