I'm really looking forward to these Games (especially attempting to understand Goalball, even after one of my friends [and former classmates] attempted to explain it to me).

Anyhow, I found this article on my twitter, and since this is the only open thread that's dealing with the Paralympics, I thought I'd share it here:

The Paralympic Torch Route began today and will continue throughout the country until the 29th.

Four groups of Scouts trekked up Scafell Pike, England's highest peak, Slieve Donard in Northern Ireland, Snowdon in Wales and Ben Nevis in Scotland - the UK's highest point - to ignite the flame.

For me personally, the torch arrived in York this afternoon after a cauldron was lit in London. It will 'spawn' four torches which will travel Yorkshire throughout the weekend.

A ceremonial cauldron has been lit in London's Trafalgar Square to launch the Paralympic torch relay.

Claire Lomas, who was paralysed in a horse riding accident, lit the cauldron from the English national flame kindled on Scafell Pike.

I dunno where to post this but I'm hearing Kate has been spotted today preparing for tomorrow's opening ceremony.

Emma McCarthy ‏@Miss_McCarthy Ere, Kate Middleton's getting her hair washed in the sink next to mine. Should I request tumbling duchess-esque curls in homage?
But ya I agree I don't see Wills Kate and Harry only doing such few appearances. I think they'll appear at more events.

One athlete I will follow is Alex Zanardi in paracycling. I still remember watching that horrible accident in Germany in 2001 when his car was hit by another driver, I was convinced that he couldn't have survived it. He have made a fantastic recovery after that.
