"It matters a great deal who is going to win, but not at all who won"
Paralympic DayNational Paralympic Day - two years on from the 2012 Paralympics - gave Stuart an opportunity to revisit the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It was fascinating to see how the park had developed over the past two years.
A programme of sport and other activities attracted a large crowd to the park. Stuart was able to watch Anna Sharkey come off the bench and score three goals as GB women's goalballers turned a 2-5 deficit into a 7-5 victory. The audience included Prince Edward and Stef Reid.
