Running fast is one thing, running fast
and blindfolded is totally different main skills you need when running with a guide is good
communication, trust, teamwork and for the guide they need to be able to change
their stride strength and obviously be quick enough because you lose your sight and you’re depending on
your hearing is absolutely crucial that when you’re blindfolded you’re fully aware of your surroundings everything changes, it feels much closer, to communication at
this point when you’re blindfolded is really important I think it’s so much fun it is a challenge as you
would expect when you’re blind folded you are not utterly dependent but you are
significantly dependent on somebody who is your guide You’ve really really got to make sure
they are communicating you’ve got to make sure that your stripe patterns is in sync you got to make sure that your is technically right as you can because
it’s less likely to slow them down then you can travel quickly as a pair. I think the Active Kids Paralympic Challenge is a fantastic way to get kids interested in Paralympic sport ahead of Rio this year. it gives an insight into the challenges
what Paralympic athletes face and also get fantastic opportunity to meet athletes and have ones to aspire to and hopefully cheer on in the Games in September Sainsbury’s Active Kids Paralympic Challenge is definitely something that kids need to try. I feel like getting Para sports into the public eye full stop is incredibly important so being able to try it out and seeing ways that you can 110 percent get into sport and have fun with your friends I think is just so important
