|Mounia Gasmi, Sliver Medallist in the Club Throwing|
We were moved by displays of extraordinary courage and determination by athletes of outstanding ability.
We saw Oscar Pistorius look imperious in qualification for the 200 meters final, Jason Smyth ease to victory in the 100m and Liu Fuliang break two world records on the way to the triple jump title.
But my favourite sight of the evening was the bundle of smiles that is Mounia Gasmi, the silver medal winning club thrower from Algeria. Her face told you everything you needed to know about the pride, joy and dedication that goes into paralympic sport.
It will remain with me forever.
