Day Nine: Competition Time

It’s competition time, it’s time to see if all the training and hard work has been worth it. All the preparation in the world could be useless if it doesn’t go right on the day.

ParalympicsGB definitely have the home advantage from all the crowds but the athletes need to make sure that they use it to their advantage and not let the pressure build.

I managed to get onto poolside to lifeguard during the competition itself and saw the Women’s 100M Butterfly and the Men’s 200M Individual Medley along with two medal ceremonies.

The atmosphere during races is phenomenal, the crowd goes absolutely crazy when a GB swimmer enters the field of play and all throughout the race.

Luckily today though, nobody needed saving.

Step count for the day: 11,515
