Looking forward to the games,my daughter has a friend who is a para-olympian swimmer,she had to have both legs amputated at the knees when she was 18 months old ,the lower leg bones had not developed properly .Iasked her permission to tell you all her name so she could get some extra cheering it's Charlotte Henshaw she is 27 and comes from Mansfield in Notts,she swims 100m breast stroke and 400m free,she has a web site that you can look her up on it's www.charlottehenshaw.co.uk.
GOOD LUCK . Mig

    Good luck Charlotte. Hope you get a medal. I think they are all wonderful. Some of them I know are in pain while they train so put me to shame as I don't really exercise any more. Come on Team GB. :D

    A true celebration of athletes making the most of themselves. Murderball is something else!

    Watch the 'Last Leg' on channel 4 (is it OK to.....?) at 10ish, a good laugh!

    Its a grin, honest!
