"Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play…it is war minus the shooting."
IPC World Athletics 2015The 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.
