It has been a LONG four years waiting since London 2012 for the next Paralympics, but the time has finally come again for the #SuperHumans to take centre stage!
London 2012 forever raised the bar for the Paralympic movement, as it truly did attempt to bring the Paralympics ‘Parallel’ to the Olympics and its legacy continues to resonate as we lead into Rio..
Since the Olympics ended, there has been much discussion as to how successful the Rio Paralympics would be; with fear that the budget cuts and lack of tickets sales would take the Paralympics backwards, rather than forwards. While we will not be able to answer most of these questions until the Games conclude, there is no doubt that records will be broken, medals will be won, and icons will emerge over these two magical weeks.
Although GB is not represented in the Goalball tournament, as the GB Women’s Goalball team narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Rio Paralympics, we will be glued to the schedule/results!
Soak up as inspiring sport as you can over the next two weeks as Tokyo is a long way away! #LetsGoGB
