I am 10 days removed from my role as part of the media pool covering the Paralympic Games in London.
Our pool was not only a shallow one relative to the ocean of coverage which swelled around the London 2012 Olympic Games, it was a puddle.
What a shame.
These are among the best in the world at what they do.
There is no distinction. There is no 'Para'. There is no prefix. There is just pure sport. Pure effort. Pure emotion.
These are elite athletes.
