Paralympic teams visit uni campus
8:30am Saturday 16th June 2012 in News
BRITISH Paralympians are currently visiting the University of Winchester ahead of the Games later this summer.
Both the men’s and women’s GB goalball teams are at the university this weekend preparing for the Games, which begin at the end of August.
Goalball, a three-a-side sport, is played by visually impaired athletes, who use a ball with bells inside to track its movement.
The GB squads used the university’s sports hall on King Alfred Campus while relatives attended workshops to help prepare them for the expectations of the Games.
