The Olympics may have finished but the Games are not over yet – next month it is the turn of the Paralympics to take over Brazil.
Despite some controversy around the Games having to be scaled back athletes from all over the world will be travelling to Rio to compete.
Among them is swimmer Ryan Crouch from Manningtree. The 22-year-old, who has mild cerebral palsy, trains at Crown Pools in Ipswich and will be racing at his first Games this year.
Before he left for the athletes’ holding camp in London he spoke to reporter Edmund Crosthwaite about his preparations and targets for his races.
