The Amputee Games 2010

The 2010 Amputee Games took place last weekend (14th and 15th August) and were a great success. Many new amputees were able to try different sports, some with a view to possibly taking part in the 2012 Paralympic Games.

We will be publishing reports as they come in and would love to hear from you if you were there and would like to share your experiences.

In the meantime, thanks to Leggz, who was there helping with the cycling, for sending these great photographs taken by Andrew Skinner.

We hope that you’ll be able to see from them what a fantastic and worthwhile opportunity the Amputee Games offers to meet fellow amputees and, perhaps, to have a go at a sport or activity you’ve never tried, or even thought of trying, before.

If you were there, we hope that the images will bring back some happy memories and, if you weren’t, that you’ll be inspired to go along next year.

Please keep checking this page for updates and here is a link to the photographs, which really speak for themselves:

Many congratulations to all concerned for their hard work in creating what was obviously a very special event clearly enjoyed and appreciated by all who attended.
