Golden Girl!!

By phil_j  
Hannah Coockroft, Team GB's Paralympian Champion in the Women's 100 metres for T34 Athletes (Athletes with a mild impairment affecting the trunk and arms, and a severe impairment affecting the legs. They have reduced muscle co-ordination which affects the ability to propel their chairs)
I was honoured to meet her yesterday during a break from my shift at the Paralympics and she thought nothing of spending some time talking to us and posing for photo's with her Gold Medal.
Really making some great memories at the Olympics and Paralympics.
Phil
