Last night sadly marked the end of London 2012. The Paralympics came to a close with Team GB coming third, behind China and Russia, with 120 medals in total, 34 of those were gold. Sarah Storey and David Weir both won the most amount of medals for Team GB, earning 4 each in their events.
The Olympics and Paralympics have been enjoyed by all and it appears that the whole of London as well as the UK have embraced the games, with all the support certainly adding to our success.
Coldplay, Rihanna and Jay-Z all played at the closing ceremony at the Olympic Park, marking the handover and lead up to Rio in 2016. We must say that Rihanna looked beautiful. Obviously she must be a big fan of Hydro Cleansing and our fleet!
Following the success of London 2012 so far, with the country currently gripped by Olympic fever, after Sunday’s closing ceremony, it is only a matter of time before the Paralympics kick off.
These games are due to run from Wednesday 29th August – Sunday 9th September.
The major international event sees athletes with physical disabilities compete, including athletes with amputations, blindness and mobility disabilities.
Over 2 million of the 2.5 million tickets have been sold, with tickets continuing to sell well; it is expected to be the first Paralympic games to sell out, in its 52 year history
