Lots has been written about the outstanding performances of the athletes at the World Para Athletics in London.  Once again Channel 4 did a fantastic job of taking the event into households all over the country.

I was fortunate enough to visit the event several times and was really impressed with the Hero Zone where spectators could engage with Paralympic sport and have a go at seated throwing, guiding a visually impaired runner, running with an eye mask, pushing a racing wheelchair on rollers and other disciplines.  There was a wheelchair skills course allowing spectators to experience momentarily navigating obstacles in a wheelchair.

A great innovation was the Medal Plaza outside the Stadium allowing the public to get close to the ceremonies and interact with the athletes in the Hero Zone.  Congratulations to London 2017, UK Athletics, the International Paralympic Committee, the sponsors and partners for delivering a fantastic event and spectator experience.
