      • You’re welcome. The whole treatment of the Paralympics seems quite wrong to me. Disabled athletes are called superheroes and put under pressure to provide inspiration, more so I think than other athletes are. Even the title ‘Paralympics’ sounds vaguely insulting, as though people like me are a little bit of extra tacked onto what the real people are doing. We didn’t even get clear trailers about when we’d be able to watch the Paralympics until after the ‘main’ Olumpics were nearly over.

        It’s certainly a step in the right direction. But I hope there’ll be improvement. Living in Yorkshire, I’m proud to hear journalists and others crowing about how well our Yorkshire athletes have performed in the Olympics. Now I hope to hear similar tales about the disabled athletes from this part of the country. And from anywhere else too!
