Here’s an update from 2015 RIC A level student Ollie Mangion:
I’ve been very busy recently with preparations for Rio and commitments to GB. Most of the photos were taken during last season’s nationals that happened in April, since then I’ve been invited to go to international competitions in Poland and of course go to Rio as part of the Paralympic Inspiration Programme. The programme is designed as a sort of educational tool for athletes that are expected to compete at the next Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020, this is meant to provide you with a competitive advantage over other athletes when you do finally go to compete in your first games as they are not actually your first games! The idea is to get used to and soak in the atmosphere so that being at such a large scale event so that it’s not completely overwhelming when you experience it for real.
Good luck Ollie from all at RIC
