Cheering on the Boccia McGuire brothers

Today I got to see some sporting action at the Excel centre.

Excel is home to sitting-volley ball, Boccia and power lifting to name but a few. Union Jack in hand I was able to cheer home GB’s Boccia McGuire brothers in the semi-finals but unfortunately Brazil beat them and GB now faces Canada in the bronze medal match. However Brazil let themselves down in the sitting volley ball when Iraq stole victory.

I couldn’t enjoy the action for too long though as the Paralympic Post second edition deadline is looming and I’m spending the remainder of my day in the NASUWT offices typing up my articles and interviews – sparks flying off the keyboard so I don’t miss my deadline.

The venues are still packed even though most schools go back today which is great to see. I also saw a medal ceremony n powerlifting, unfortunately no medals for Team GB but it was still very moving to see athletes living out their dreams.
