  1. Believe me, really wonderful, this people are the motor of the world, the soul of the life

  2. Brings back the memories of one of the greatest summers of sport ever.

  3. The Olympics gets huge attention every year. 2012 was the year the Paralympics became equal. London was the year it wasn't called a disability but an ability. I find everyone who took part truly inspirational.
    Proud to be British.

  4. what i love about para olympics is you give people that have problems or lost something a chance

  5. paralympics need to be on the media more often! THIS IS SKILLS!

  6. thousands of lessons , taught from this small video . !!!

  7. that was a beautiful video. truely inspiring. thanks for the upload!

  8. It was an experience I wish to relieve again like I did last year, I love London and your universities, I went to UCL for 3 years hoping for masters soon here. I will hopefully come back to London soon next year. From an American. 🙂 . Trumped our Olympics, think we need to step up a gear when we win again 😉 .

  9. Who else gets goosebumps whenever they watch this film?

  10. Boris Nonte – Come Alive.
    I put it on YouTube, cause this song was missing :

  11. Not just the Paralympics, but the Olympics as a whole, in London in 2012, will always be one of my favorite Olympic games of all time.

  12. This video brings tears to my eyes EVERY time I watch it

  13. I love this video so much! Great athletes, great exitement!

  14. hasn't been the best few years for Oscar Pistorius 

  15. London was thw best games ever!! Hope to see it back soon here!!

  16. Really good work Enjoyed every bit of it 🙂 I might not be as pro like that but ill sure appreciate a visit to my channel, maybe subscribe ? 🙂

  17. This is truly amazing and inspirational, so sad they don't transmit them in my country (Mexico) I'm friendo of guy who won 2 Gold medals, 1 silver medal and 1 copper medal in those paralympic games, he's mexican too and his name is Gustavo Sánchez, we met in High School and he's an amazing person.

  18. I want to impress to see live that I'll go to see absolutely when you do in Tokyo!

  19. quite sad how oscar ruined his future….good luck to the other paralympians

  20. I really hope that London (we will) get it again on day!

  21. everything is possible.this guy's are truly hero's.

  22. Genuinely can't explain it, I'm not an emotional person, but just sat and rewatched this and couldn't stop crying. I was so proud of my country 4 years ago, this whole event changed the perception of negativity and failure that my generation grew up with. These are the kind of values I can relate to – the struggles towards achievement that are worthy of commendation. It sends words of encouragement to everyone that their most daring dreams are possible!


  24. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Oscar Pistorius.
    What he accomplished for disabled sports is unbelievable. And it's sad that people seem to want to forget that.

  25. wow… very perfect games ever!!!

  26. Dont hold them… let them flow..
    i as did…. in tears now
    Huge respect from India 🇮🇳

  27. congratulations to all these wonderful people who are stronger than us and never give up
