Paralympics judo medal ceremony
Paralympics judo medal ceremony
This is the medals ceremony for women up to 48 kg. Most contestants are visually disabled, some are deaf. The gold medal went to Carmen Brussig of Germany, silver to Lee Kai-Lin of Chinese Taipei, bronze to Potopova of Russia and Halinska of Ukraine.
In the photo the crowd are standing for the German National Anthem. The flags have been hoisted at this end of the stadium by a contingent from the Royal Air Force. We had booked specifically for this session, so had guaranteed seats in the ExCel. We had day passes for the ExCel and were able to watch some sitting volleyball as well. With people having specific session passes and those having day passes there was a very good crowd of spectators - the empty seats on the right are those reserved for teams. TV cameras are immediately next to the mat area on the right. Seats in rows behind them are for judo officials and coaches. Behind them are spaces for disabled spectators.
