The Paralympics have been great so far. The opening ceremony was awesome, and the events have been ruddy fantastic.
First up the wheelchair basketball has been class, and did you all see Mr. ‘MONSTER’ Whitehead absolutely destroy the 200m the other day? Absolute machine. Although I’d probably want him dope tested if I was one of his opponents. The way he broke from the back and jetted off at a ridiculous speed looked pretty unnatural.
The table tennis has not been disappointing either, with shots like the one below proving to be just brilliant. The shot was made was during a game between David Wetherill (GB) and Kusiak Thomasz (GER), which makes it pretty special game already (GB VS GER etc). So, there’s a rally going on and next thing you know, Wetherill absolutely gives it his all and makes one of the sickest shots I’ve ever witnessed. Whoever was commentating totally jizzed their pants while it went down too – mega lolz. Check a video of the sick shot below:
(BTW, the photo above isn’t David Wetherill, it’s just the highest resolution photo I could find of a Paralympic table tennis player)
