Far and away the best thing about these Games has been the amazing springy legs now used by those who’ve lost their own.  It’s not just that the athletes can now run 100m in a few seconds but that they can stroll, skip and apparently dance with as much if not more agility than the able-bodied.
I’d never seen these bendy, bouncy blades before and hope they are as easy to use (and available) in everyday life as on the track – and that those who invented / developed them enjoy global acclaim.  Sport is of course A Good Thing, but this is truly astounding.
