The guide is tapping each goal post so the player can line up his kick with the net.

Both Players run past the ball, the ball jingles when it moves, when it comes to a stop they have to search it out.

The goal tender is the only player able to see the ball.

Yeah I had full access, except to the athlete village.
I have more pics to share just been too busy to upload em.

I ended up going to most of the events either at the heats or finals.

I met a great many disabled people and it was very inspiring.

It was a huge event in the UK with the games fully sold out each day. The crowds were amazing.

Here is one of the event stadium for equestrian, it had a great view of London from up in the stands.
