The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games were a huge success this Summer. Sebastian Coe, the chair of the London 2012 organising committee, said in his closing Paralympic speech 'Together these past few weeks we have shared some wonderful days, haven't we?' Pupils and students from Columbus School and College felt that they had shared in the whole experience by being fortunate enough to be a part of the Paralympic athletic events in the Olympic Stadium. He also said 'In this country we will never think of sport the same way and we will never think of disability the same way. So yes, the Paralympians have lifted the cloud of limitation.' We agree and embrace what opportunities our legacy brings.
