Para-athletes from around the world will come together at the Olympic Stadium for the World Para Athletics Championships held in London. The stadium hosted a triumphant 2012 Olympics for both athletes and para-athletes alike. Over the course of the 10 days there will be an array of track and field events as well as indoor sports. Famous home grown talent such as Jonnie Peacock in the 100m and swimmer Ellie Simmonds will be looking to win gold. The championships include specially adapted sports, including wheelchair rugby and basketball. These are played alongside unique games such as Goalball, designed specifically with blind athletes in mind.
