A paralympic athlete returned to Waltham Forest to enjoy an afternoon of sport.
Tim Prendergast opened the sports day organised by Salaam Peace yesterday, before children of all ages, and teenagers, got stuck in.
Within five years he lost most of his vision.
Despite this huge setback he found a passion for running and fought hard for a spot in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.
He won gold in the T13 800 metres contest.
