Incredible what these almost totally blind athletes are capable of achieving, and an inspiration to all: and you have captured this action shot so well, Phil, their determination plainly evident.

Good work again Phil, you have to admire these folk.....In fact all of the Para-Olympians, as a slightly disabled person myself, I feel they put me and my insignificant problems to shame....Well done you BTW for volunteering your time for this very worthy event......Big pat on the back from me!

Its been one of the most emotional and humbling 2 weeks of my life Ade, being self employed it was basically an unpaid working holiday but I would gladly do it all again tomorrow if the chance came around again. My final shift was Saturday and I can honestly say the tears were flowing as my fellow Gamesmakers in my area said our farewells, we met some inspoiring people, saw such amazing feats of achievement and watched in awe at the determination shown by all the athletes.
I have a nephew who has Cerebral palsy, I see he struggle sometimes.....us that are considered "able bodied" should applaud our wonderfull "Team GB Paralympians".
