IPC World Athletics 2015

The IPC World Athletics Championships took place in Doha last month and Stuart was there, writing and supporting athletes. On Friday he organized a group of 8 athletes to attend church. Why Friday? Because that is the day the church has its "Sunday" service. He also led a Bible Study for athletes.

The following images will give you a flavour of the event.

The amputee high jump is an amazing event with many competitors hopping to the bar!
