Topic: WOW!!!!! Absolutely amazing to see this!!

I just had to share this here! From the Paralympics today, the 200m final, amazing!!

Richard Whitehead from the UK -

"His achievement was all the more remarkable given his specialist event is actually the marathon, for which he holds a world record of 2hr 42min 54sec. It is a time that would be beyond many decent, able-bodied club runners."

I agree, Gavin. This was an astonishing race. The swimmers are awe-inspiring, too. xx
