Olympic Stadium – London 2012 Paralympics

Yesterday we were lucky enough to get to visit the Olympic Stadium for the 2012 London Paralympics.

Absolutely amazing!

The stadium is huge; it has a seating capacity of 80,000 and it was difficult to see many blocks of spaces.

Mexican waves washed round in one direction and the roar of the crowd cheering on the wheelchair track events washed round in the opposite direction as the crowds cheered the competitors racing past.

There were huge roars from the crowds of people whenever Team GB did … anything!

In fact the spectators cheered for all the competitors.

But the elation of seeing Hannah Cockroft take the gold medal in the women’s 100m race! Fantastic stuff! The crowd went wild.

I spent a lot of my time there drawing the stadium from our seats. Well, there’s not going to be many times when I can draw whilst inside an Olympic Stadium!
