It’s only one day until I report for my table officiating duties. The sun is shining in London and I am still rather calm.
I thought I would take a trip down memory lane, these photos show the road I walked along to get to school.
This building is my high school and where I was first introduced to Basketball in the late eighties. Two of my physical education teachers were Basketball players to a high international standard. Along with the school’s science technician they went out of their way to bring Basketball to the pupils.
I honestly back in the days of being a teenager thought the boys on the Basketball team were better looking than the Soccer team. This is why I started getting involved with Basketball.
Fast forward twenty years or so and Basketball has been a constant in my life. I think of the people I know through Basketball as family, they are there for you when need them. They can also tell you a few home truths.
I am still in awe that in less than 24 hours I will be handing over my accreditation and entering the Paralympic village. I feel extremely blessed and proud to have this opportunity in the city back where it began.
