Paralympics Meanderings

Paralympics Meanderings

How fabulous are the Paralympics? I love seeing how the athletes have worked so hard and triumphed over such adversity. They are inspirational. It’s quite staggering to see how far some of them have come in their lives and their sport. And – well, they’re fantastic athletes.
