These photos are from the races at the Olympic Stadium today (Thursday). I gave my nephew George some tickets I had and he was delighted to go and see some of the games. He is back on duty in Afgan from the weekend so the Paralympics is close to his heart. The photos came with a lovely thank you message.
Looks like they had great seats. He said that the paralympic athletes `Are the True Warriors of this World`. Well said.

Men's 100 metre race
There was plenty more excitement in the water last night with the men's 50 metres and 100 metres being loudly cheered.
The guys prepare for their race.
I have really enjoyed the Olympics and the Paralmpics and I have been to a few of the events but last night was the most dramatic and inspirational. The athletes were truly sensational. They made the water their own territory were disability was irrelevant with power, style and determination being all that mattered.
