We speak to three visually impaired people about their experiences of the Olympics and their expectations of the Paralympics. We then discuss with Shaun McCarthy, Chair of the Commission for Sustainable London 2012 about what was hoped for the Olympics when it came to diversity of Olympic and Paralympic volunteers, accessibility of venues and access to the sporting action for visually impaired spectators. We then look past the games to what kind of legacy we can expect for future big sporting events.
