Paralympics comes to Bollington

When J was at primary school, around age 7 or 8 I think, he had a friend called James who lived a few doors away. Here they are peeking through the glass of our back door.

Here is James yesterday, 2nd September (far right) at the Paralympics

James older sister Libby (22) is also a Paralympic athlete. Last night she broke the European record to win silver in the 100 metre T-12 to add to the silver medal she won in Beijing. For James (18) this is his first Paralympics.  He competes later in the week in both the 50m freestyle and 100m freestyle while Libby competes again in the 200 metre. Both have a congenital condition that causes their eyesight to deteriorate.
