One of the most amazing things I've ever seen was the Men's 4x100 relay T11/T13. The visually impair athletes needed silence to enable them to communicate with the team mates for a good baton change. 80,000 spectators sat in total silence until the last runner had the baton then they went wild with cheering.
Well I was in tears with it all last night, not a trace of pity just overwhelming pride. Incredible spectacle that IMHO has been BETTER than the Olympics which is something I cannot believe Im saying. Have spoken via twitter to Jonathan Fox, Jessica Long ( chuffed face) and just a minute ago the Paralympic association of the USA who spectacularly missed my whole point about the lack of US coverage and therefore support and understanding.
It has been a revelation the stories behind these Heroes is jawdroping, Jonnies backstory for one would have any parent in tears.
I find Oscar Pistorius especially pleasing to the eye.
