    Launch of Rio Paralympic Ganmes - 7 Sept

    This should be something to celebrate but I believe that the take up of seats is like 12% capacity.

    Fancy trying to do your best in front of empty stadiums.

    An old friend of mine was selected fr the GB Team - look out for John Stubbs in the wheelchair archery - he's going for gold.

    Good luck to them all.

    If you could take part - what sport would you choose.

    And of course, as seems inevitable these days, funding has been cut.
    To the point where some countries may not even be able to attend because of delays in travel grants.

    "Yes, I can" - if I can afford to get there?

    Good luck to all participants, wherever they come from.

    Always fancied a go at archery, but would probably be better at the rifle shooting.
    As a teenager I used to be pretty good at high jump (I would regulary clear 2m+, I think my record was 2.23) but doubt I could manage it now.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
