Ouch! disability talk show #89: Paralympics-a-go-go
How did the Games originally start? What happens when you put 200 wheelchair athletes in a tower block with only two lifts? What does wheelchair racer Hannah Cockroft have for breakfast before a competition? And how does the mum of two Paralympic swimmers feel on the eve of the big home event? This 45 minute roundtable special also has head of the IPC Sir Philip Craven, former table tennis competitor Jane Blackburn and pundit Tony Garrett. Rob Crossan presents.
