Entry Description

Inspirational stories --Shots captured during the paralympic swimming world championship held in Glasgow swimming centre in 2015. Every one of the swimmer i managed to talk to had stories of courage and determination and every time i feel low i go through some of these images to get inspiration.One of the swimmers mentioned to me how after being assaulted by her boy friend left her with brain injury and muscle weakness and yet how she is determined to prove to him that he has not succeeded in making her feel defeated. The blind swimmer competed with their coaches banging a stick with bells against the floor to guide them the general and lane direction. Their other team mates shouted and clapped in the forward direction to cheer and also to guide them and the atmosphere was more than inspirational.To me this is one of the best sports photography opportunities ever.
