Yeah. That's a thing that happened.
Anyway, I was lucky enough to visit the Paralympics on 7th September, one of the last days of the whole Games which was very exciting! I had a day pass, which meant I could see any rugby, basketball or tennis (I think?!) and so me and my group of friends watched wheelchair rugby, GB vs. Japan - the whole park had an amazing atmosphere and for me, really summed up what being British is about. After watching the match (for which we'd waited two hours in thirty degree heat to get some AMAZING seats as with day pass tickets you just RUN to the best seats available) we headed to the British Airways Park Live screens to watch the end of the wheelchair tennis where GB won a bronze medal. I seriously couldn't have wished for a better day and am so glad that when I'm ancient, like forty (haha!) I'll be able to tell my kids that I, Emily, visited the London 2012 Paralympics Games! Below are some pics for you to enjoy...
