The video is called
Meet the Superhumans
and you can watch it on YouTube here.
As I’m not I the UK (curse you geoblocking) I can’t embed the video in this blog, sorry. You can find out more about it on Channel Four’s Paralympics website.
After watching this several times I came to the humbling realisation that I had subconsciously thought of the Paralympics as a rather secondary sort of competition and that this attitude is not only patronising but is insulting to the athletes who compete. For this I am extremely sorry.
So thankyou Gruen Sweat and Channel 4 for shaking up my attitudes. I’ll be watching the Paralympics on ABC with a new avidity.
