Okay, so I know I've already written a blog about David Weir, our local Wallington boy who had an amazing summer at the Paralympics. I went to see the 5000m performance in the Stratford stadium and the atmosphere was electric, a truly memorable day for me. But when I wrote that, I was congratulating him for his two gold medals. Since then, the paralympics has now finished and by the end he had been awarded two more! So that would be a total of four gold medals out of four events! The 800m, the 1500m, the 5000m and the Marathon are all highly competitive, but nobody told Dave that, he dominated each one! So the issue here in Wallington is that we are fast running out of postboxes to paint gold! On a serious note I do hope he gets one in Roundshaw and they don't all end up in the town centre.

David Weir, AKA The WierWolf It's no secret that here in the office we have been gripped by Paralympic fever. It's amazing enough for Great Britain to be second in the medal table - considering our small population - but to think that one of the most amazing athletes in the world hails from our humble town of Wallington in Surrey beggars belief. We have been following David's career for a while now, watching three of his four marathon victories with great interestĀ (yeah we missed one, sorry David), but what he has achieved so far during these 2012 Paralympics has just about eclipsed his long list of incredibly impressive prior achievements. The decision to enter four intensely competitive events is not one you take lightly. The ability to be competitive in so many races one after the other is very rare and something truly astounding. So, how is "our Dave" doing so far? Not too shabby, two gold medals from two events....
