The Olympic Stadium

Sue and I spent Monday evening at the World Para-athletics championships which are being held at the Olympic Stadium in London. One of the people interviewed in the stadium said ‘you focus on the disability for about 10 minutes and then you realise what extraordinary athletes these are!’ It’s true!
