Michael McEwan: Why 2016 has been a great year for disability events
Writer Michael McEwan rounds up some of the highlights in disability news for 2016
IT'S been a busy year for disability news. First of all, I would like to say well done to Team Scotland at this summer's Paralympic Games in Rio.
2016 was a record year for Team GB, with the haul of 17 medals, six more than four years ago. Aside from the sporting achievements, the games are an excellent platform for disability sport and showcase that people with a disability can compete in sport.
