    Personally I enjoyed the Paralympics more than the able bodied equivalent 2012 and it received massive coverage in our country .

    After both the majority of Eleiko competition sets used for the lifts and warming up were available for purchase .

    I posted this video on Tumblr, where I have like 10 or so (non-bot) followers, and it eventually got over 100+ reblogs and comments. I still come back and watch this. Incredible.
