Paralympics – Athletics

Wow what a day.  Aquatics in the morning, then catching up with old colleagues for a drink in the Olympic Park, a snooze in front of the big screens with one eye watching the events and then an evening of Athletics.

How blessed am I to have experienced most of the Olympic Venues.

My good friend Marie-Claire joined me this evening.  We are perfectly positioned to see the entire track and also the discus, javellin and long jump areas.  The atmosphere was incredible and even more so when we saw races with amazing competitors such as David Weir in them.

Paralympic AthleticsAn incredible evening and my oh my do those athletes deserve every cheer they get during the Paralympics.  I can’t imagine the strength of these individuals to compete at this level in spite of any disabilities.  Much much respect.
