Paralympics LDN 2012

Recentely I went to see Athletics at the Paralympics! It was such a great experience and the crowd was so overwhelming when there was a member of Team GB competing! I went with my friend Amy who managed to score us the tickets last-minute! My only complaints were that the lifting of the flags is much less impressive in real life, a hot chocolate costs £4! and that Stratford is a little impersonal. Knowing me, if those are my only complaints it means I had one of the best days. A Cypriot Parathlete came first in one of the heats unfortunately I think we missed that but I can tell you I think the high from cheering on a team at the olympics is much better than any high off hitting the clubs. I loved every second, if you get the opportunity to see the Olympic Park, don’t think twice, just go!
