Paralympic Closing Ceremony

Again, this ceremony didn't disappoint! It was spectacular! I particularly enjoyed when the flag bearers came into the stadium and we were left guessing as to the shape they would create. When they were all in place a heart was lit up around them, it was very special.

I would have preferred a few more artists, like there was in the Olympic closing ceremony but Cold Play laid on a very good concert of their work with guest performances from Rhianna and Jay-Z.

The closing speeches were inspiring and then the Paralympic flag was handed over to Rio for the 2016 games. Sadly then our flame was extinguished for the last time. I was truly sad at the time but as in the words of Dr Seuss "don't be sad it's over - be glad it happened"
