My Dave will take Rio by storm

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

I’LL hold my hands up and ad­mit that I haven’t ac­tu­ally watched much of the Olympics cov­er­age this time around.

For me, the most ex­cit­ing part is when the Par­a­lympics kick off once the main Games have fin­ished.

I al­ways get such a buzz from watch­ing the Par­a­lympians com­pete as they are such in­cred­i­ble, in­spi­ra­tional peo­ple and they have over­come so much to get to where they are. And, as al­ways, I will be cheer­ing on my good friend David Weir. I’ve men­tioned be­fore in my col­umn that he grew up on the same es­tate as I did and it’s great to see some­one from my area do­ing so well for them­selves.

My sis­ter still lives around there, so it’s great to see the gold post­boxes – thanks to the Gold medals he won at Lon­don 2012 – when­ever I pop round to see her.

David is go­ing for five golds this time around and I will def­i­nitely be tun­ing in to see him in ac­tion!
