Mad Dog Takes Flat Ruthie to the Paralympics in London

This just in from Mad Dogcheck out his blog here 
Flat Ruthie heard that I was shooting a documentary at the Paralympics in London and came to help. She had some trouble carrying the tripod, but was a really big help with the pull focus.

I couldn’t help noticing that Britain, David Weir, won his T54 heat while Flat Ruthie was helping me, though I think she’s bringing luck to all the athletes.

The Paralympics have been a tremendous success and all the events I’ve filmed have been full of spectators. I imagine that most visitors are British, but they have been very generous with their applause, in the true  spirit of the original Olympics.

    This time, I really do envy Flat Ruthie. I saw a sports report from London. The crowds that have turned out for the Paralympics are just incredible and the Opening Ceremonies were beautiful. London and the Londoners have done themselves proud, giving these athletes their due– and then some.

      It’s been quite an amazing experience, especially in the stadium, where sometimes there are as many as four events taking place at the same time. The clapping and cheering is almost constant!

    Good old Ruthie. I knew she’d be a patriot.
    Just a minute- shouldn’t she have been cheering for the Americans?
