London 2012 Paralympic Games - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
IT WAS the event on everyone’s lips and had the whole world in awe this summer.
An absolute triumph, London 2012 shed light on the superhuman capabilities of the world’s paralympians who, like their able-bodied sporting counterparts, are set apart from the rest of us by their staggering ability, not their disability.
GB hero Jonnie Peacock proved himself the fastest man on one leg and made Paralympic Games history in the T44 100m sprint, earning him a new Paralympic record.
Supreme Cyclist Sarah Storey gained her 11th Paralympic gold, making her GB’s greatest Paralympian of the modern era. And David ‘Weirwolf’ Weir exceeded all expectations by taking home a staggering four gold medals in wheelchair racing and the marathon.
Re-live these astonishing achievements, share in their dogged determination and experience the thrill of winning gold all over again! Own the breathtakingly inspirational London 2012 Paralympic Games on DVD from October 29, 2012 and Blu-ray from November 5.
Returning to the country where they began more than 60 years ago, the Paralympic Games placed London on the world stage once again, hosting 11 days of fierce competition for 4,200 athletes from 166 countries, (including more than 300 GB athletes).
To celebrate the most memorable Paralympics the world has ever seen, this new, three-disc Boxset gives fans the chance to own a piece of history and re-live all the highs and lows of one of the most exhilarating sporting events ever broadcast.
