Rio 2016: The family of four competing at the Paralympics

Boccia is a sport played by Paralympians with the most severe disabilities. Participants throw six balls towards the jack with the winner being the person who gets closest.

One family from Scotland will be competing together. Brothers Jamie and Scott McCowan, who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy, will represent Paralympics GB.

Their parents have also travelled to Rio to be their ramp assistants.
