Let’s all get behind TeamGB once again (or your respective countries) and continue supporting our Olympians. The Paralympics, which contrary to popular belief means ‘parallel olympics.’ Many people think it is a take on paraplegic or paralysed and I only learnt it was in fact parallel last week. This fact made me very happy to know that it wasn’t discrimination or a large label saying DISABLED. And I quite like the idea of the Parallel Olympics.
So let’s not let our teams down and support them as we did the Olympics – let’s tune in to Channel 4 and watch our successes!!!
Last night I had the honour of attending the Paralympic Opening Ceremony with my family as we were lucky enough to get tickets! It was phenomenal. I will write a proper, more detailed post on this later and once I have uploaded some photos!!
