GAMES
By Anna Tizzard
It's August 1994 and Anna is in the Commonwealth village in Victoria, Canada. She's a paralympic swimmer, and it's the first time that disabled swimmers have been allowed to compete at the same games and on the same terms as able-bodied people. She feels really privileged. Disabled sport has come a long way - she trains nine times a week - gone are the days when you got a medal just for turning up.
