Coping with Hemiplegia on Sports Day

Back

This is a photo of me running in the relay race at my old school on Sports Day, which mainly consisted of my tripping over several times and coming last, but who cares it was fun anyway, "it's not about the Winning it's about the taking part!"

I can remember the times when I would be off school when it was Sports Day, I am wearing my neoprene splint on my bad arm, but didn't run in my special shoes, as soon as I started off I regretted my decision to wear the plimsolls, they don't give me any support at all, but at least I look like everyone else.
