Mike Weatherley is championing Britain’s sporting success following the positive reception that Britain has received for hosting the Olympic Games and, like many excited residents, is looking forward to the upcoming Paralympics.
The Olympics received international acclaim following the impressive closing ceremony on Sunday 12th August. Sporting fans won’t have to wait long for more though as the London 2012 Paralympic Games kick off on Wednesday 29th August with an official opening ceremony and run until Sunday 9th September. Around 4,000 athletes from around the world will take part in over 500 events in 21 sports.
Commenting, Mike said: “Following the incredibly successful Olympic Games, the nation is charged with post-Olympic fever. The Paralympics will be another great opportunity for Britain – and Team GB – to demonstrate to the world that we not only a top class sporting nation, but wonderful hosts. I am sure that the Paralympics will be just as well run and successful as the Olympic Games were.”
