By Tom KelleherThe day’s events have been busy, but the focus hasn’t been on what the sporting events are about.
It’s all about the people.
And that’s exactly what happened on Tuesday, when the Olympic Park opened to the public for the first time in two decades.
It was a busy day for the park, which has been transformed by a new £2bn project to revamp the area around it and make it even more inviting to runners and cyclists.
But the day’s most significant event was not a sporting event.
It was a meeting between the organisers of the London Olympics and the athletes, who were gathered at a specially-designed reception centre in the Olympic Stadium.
The athletes were presented with the medal they won in the London 2012 Summer Games.
There are more than 40 medals on offer at this year’s event, with more than 80 being handed out to athletes from the UK, USA, Germany and Japan.
But what made the event so special was the presence of a special delegation of former Olympic athletes.
It’s a rare moment when former Olympians are allowed to share their experiences of the games and the Paralympics, in a bid to build bridges between those athletes and the wider community.
It wasn’t just the athletes who were honoured, but also the Olympic village, which is now a centre of support and engagement for those affected by the Games.
It is an opportunity for those who were affected to have a positive impact and to get a sense of what happened to those who did not make the cut, according to Sarah Jones, chair of the Paralymbics Organising Committee.
It gave them a platform to get out there and speak about the issues they face, she said.
“It’s really important for them to have the opportunity to tell their stories,” she said, adding that they should not be overlooked in the Olympics.
“I think we have the Olympics for the athletes and Paralympians.
But we don’t have the Paralymics for the community.”
The Paralympic village has really come together to support those affected.
It gives a platform and opportunity for them and the community to have that dialogue.
“The village was initially created to provide an environment for the Paralykinese community to come together and discuss issues of concern, and the event is a good example of that, according Ms Jones.
The event was organised by Paralympian, and Paralymbian ambassador, Alex Hogg, with support from the Paralykmain Welfare Association and the International Paralympik Committee.
There were also sessions on the issues facing the Paralyms, and it is a chance for the volunteers, and those affected, to share information and share experiences.
The Paralykine Association has already been in contact with the athletes to offer support, and to make sure that they know the information that is being given.”
Ms Jones said it is important that the village, the athletes themselves and their sponsors are all present, and that people feel comfortable coming to the village and sharing their experiences.””
We have also been working closely with them and their families to make them feel welcome and included in the village.”

“If they don’t feel comfortable, they’re not going to come,” she added.
But she said there were a number of concerns. “
It’s all very positive.”
But she said there were a number of concerns.
“Some of them were a bit scary,” she explained.
“You’d get a lot of people asking about how they should eat their food and what they should do to get the most out of their meals.”
That’s because people haven’t had time to think about these issues.
They’re really not really aware of how many people have gone through this.””
I think the biggest issue is that people aren’t being able to really understand the process,” she continued.
“They’re really not really aware of how many people have gone through this.”
Some people will get through this without any problems.
Some people will struggle.
Some will not.
“But everyone has to have some sense of how it works, because that is the best way to stay positive.”
For me personally, I’ve been through all of it, and I’ve seen how people have reacted and it hasn’t really affected me.
“You can still do a lot better than that.”
