Journalling reads: I am slightly ashamed to admit that I have never really paid that much attention to any of the Paralympic Games before London, With so many different classifications in each event it was always a little too complicated for me. Being the home games, we made the effort to at least try and understand. We watched in amazement as these “Superhumans” won an astounding 120 medals - 34 Gold, 43 Silver and 43 Bronze. Royal Mail decided to honour them in the same way as the able bodied Olympians, by painting postboxes golden for each of the gold medallists. London 2012 has been truly amazing, bring on Rio 2016!
