Less than 2 days to go.

Friday and I am off to The Paralympics. Only the morning session andthere have been a couple of changes to the events but this is what I shall be seeing.

http://www.paralympics.org.uk/gb/events/athletics-day-9

May need a pair of Binoculars to see the competitors as the seats are not exactly the choicest around but at least I will be there. pics will follow on.

The cycling is at Brands Hatch. A Motor racing circuit and depending on time and transport available- we may try and get there. Transport is the problem as it is 25 miles from London but at least it is on the way home.

Looks like a great set of events to see these remarkable athletes. Hope the weather holds for you so a good time is had by all of you.
