Tokyo 2020 Paralympians in Aylesbury

Today I was filming four Paralympians as they gave a PE lesson to pupils at Booker Park special school in Aylesbury.

I was working for ITV Meridian with Penny Silvester. Earlier the athletes had gathered near Stoke Mandeville Stadium for the unveiling of a broadband cabinet, a modern take on the gold post boxes dedicated to the Paralympic champions of 2012.

It was in Aylesbury that more than 70 years ago the first competition for wheelchair athletes was held, when 16 injured servicemen and women took part and the Paralympic movement was born.

You can see the report below. Read more here.
