The paralympic games are astonishing. The athletes have every reason not to take part in sport. In most places it’s hard enough for able bodied people to get involved in sport but support and facilities for disabled athletes is so much harder to access. These men and women are amazing. Their spirit, determination and sense of fair play is inspirational. What a shame we don’t get the same blanket coverage on TV. Why is that? Do we think people aren’t interested?
