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.
