Playing serious Games

The action at the London Paralympics 2012 has been frenetic and often awe-inspiring.

It has been played out before huge crowds urging on either their favourite or national athletes. A number of records have fallen by the wayside in almost every discipline with the athletes not allowing any physical disability to be an athletic inability.

Barbados TODAY brings more poignant images from the Games.
