I was not invited back

I went to the Paralympics yesterday! We got Day Pass tickets for £15 so we got to go in a bunch of different venues. We started at Goalball - a sport for blind &  partially-sighted people that involves rolling a ball (with bells in) and trying to get it into the other team’s goal. (here’s a youtube clip).

After that we headed over to the wheelchair tennis arena. We saw a women’s singles qualifier, a men’s singles qualifier and the final for men’s doubles. Team USA vs Team GB and we lost - alas. Got to see the medal ceremony though.

Finally we wandered over to the wheelchair rugby arena. That game is rough - lots of fun to watch though. The Olympic park is such a happy place.
