Paralympics Rio 2016 – Ireland’s gold medal chances

The Paralympics are starting two weeks today – Wednesday the 7th of September.

Check out Channel Four’s incredible trailer for the games. Unfortunately there are major budget cuts ahead of the games with downsizing of Rio 2016 workforce, reduced transport services for athletes and closure of some media centres. So please help spread the word!

I’m really looking forward to seeing Michael McKillop in the 800m and 1500m, Noelle Lenihan the world record holder in the discus and Jason Smyth in the 100m – the Usain Bolt of the Paralympics.
