The day started just like the last; no swimmers at all. Surprisingly at around 5PM, it seemed like the entirety of the Athletes Village turned up at once, which was a huge surprise based off the previous days. We definitely weren’t going to complain about this.
Russia, Canada, Cuba & Ukraine to name a few all came looking for a swim. It is amazing what skills the swimmers have; athletes without the use of their legs haul themselves around the side of the pool and onto the starting blocks with such ease, athletes that are normally confined to their wheelchairs come alive when they are introduced to the water and the swimmer without his arms who, which such speed propels himself from the starting blocks and through the water using either butterfly or breaststroke kick.
I can feel the Paralympics becoming a truly amazing experience.
