Olympics 2012 – Wheelchair Rugby


Uploaded on November 03, 2010 by The Vault

VAULT is a documentary filmmaking project, giving young people from across the five London 2012 host boroughs the opportunity to produce a series of short films that explore the Olympics and what it takes to be an Olympian.

Wheelchair Rugby - Andrew Barrow is a former rugby union player who after suffering a spinal cord injury decided to take up wheelchair rugby.

Andrew talks about how wheelchair rugby helped in his recovery and now is a major part of his life as he and his team-mates aspire to make an impact at London 2012. Andrew believes, "it's important Paralympians are recognised as athletes with a disability rather than disabled people having a go at sport."
