    Saw the men's blind football final today between Brazil and Argentina. Tight game and it took a quality finish from a Brazilian player to win it. The finishes have to very good seen as the keepers have full sight. Brazil were the favourites bt Argentina certainly made it difficult for them

    I saw some of the game , I like the coaches who tap the goalpost with a spoon when their team has a free kick so as to aid the taker with where to aim the shot .
    It was a quality goal with some rough & ready tactics going on .
    Team GB are currently 1 min 30 seconds away from a Bronze in the wheelchair basketball featuring P'boro's Lee Manning though only 5 points in it atm .

    a fantastic Olympics and an even better para Olympics. It says a lot about the opportunities for disabled people in this country who want to get in to sports. Something for Britain to be proud of
