It all started when Channel 4 whet our appetite with their ‘Superhuman’ ad (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IocLkk3aYlk) It’s confident, empowering and inspired by the resilience of the 2012 Paralympian's. Featuring a mix of athletes and non-athletes it shows that disabled people are capable of doing both extraordinary and everyday tasks ...and amazingly, it was all filmed in 12 days!
As the Paralympic games unfolded, I loved witnessing the incredible sporting achievements, but for me, best of all has been finding out the stories behind some of the ‘ Superhumans', understanding what they have overcome to get to where they are and their never wavering determination. It’s been truly inspirational.
