  1. Just like the summer and winter Olympics, these events show the importance of attention that every paraplegic deserves.

    Very fond memories of this event. I team managed the successful Northern Ireland squad who were fabulous individuals. We found the people of Kingston very accommodating especially when we went dancing at a local hotel. They helped us up the steps on the way in, but we bounced down the steps on our own on the way out. A great way to relax before competing the next day. Those were the days.
