Chris spoke to us about the work that Wheelpower do, the history of the Paralympic movement and his own personal sporting achievements (He can powerlift almost 200kgs!), with my own favourite is where he held a World Record, for 37 minutes!

After his talk Chris did a Q&A with the students and then we were lucky enough to have our photos taken with the London 2012 Paralympic Torch!
