Belated paralympic report

In August and September we were very lucky to spend 3 wonderful days at the London 2012 paralympic games.  On the third day when we visited the main athletics stadium for the second time, we took Nicholas James and Florence in their Sasha Festival outfits.  We had an amazing morning, and were lucky enough to watch Richard Whitehead win his 200m race - the start was just below us - and we watched him receive his Gold medal which was the icing on the cake (the stadium was packed and everyone was on their feet waving flags and singing the national anthem).
