The Meaning of Sport

Half of the National Portrait Gallery Road to 2012 exhibition deals with the people behind the administration, half with the frontline athletes. The athletes have been photographed, together with a a person who inspires them. I wanted to show you this image of Anna Sharkey, playing Goalball. The eye shade blackouts are worn by all, allowing even partially sighted players to compete on an even footing (and possibly prepare for a time when they have no sight). I feel humble. If I had doubts before, I don't now - I am going to the paralympics.

The paralympians are the most inspiring group of sportspeople ever, I watch in awe as they put everything into their sport and wonder how they keep positive. Enjoy the paralympics and look forward to seeing some pictures.

Wow. To be honest, I have never heard of paralympics before. But will surely check it out, sounds like something inhuman.
