Rio Paralympics 2016

It is very sad that the end of the Rio Paralympics should be so deeply marred by the tragic death of an Iranian cyclist. No one who has watched any of the coverage could fail to be impressed by the achievements of the competitors. I constantly make the point that we should be grateful for what we have and we should be mindful of those worse off than ourselves. The fact that the paralympic athletes have had to overcome such a wide variety of disabilities and yet still achieve such sporting excellence is truly inspiring.
