Guiding Star – BBC Science Focus
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Scott Balmer | Share link:

In the July issue of BBC Science Focus is another illustration I have made for the Aleks Krotoski column titled Guiding Star, this time talking about disabled athletes while filming on a new documentary about how perceptions have changed with one of the biggest events being the 2012 Paralympics.

Aleks’ guide at a Californian training ground is one of the few athletes that has moved into training and running with blind athletes and looks at how rewarding it is to not only have a new lease on their athletic career, but also helping push disabled athletes above and beyond what is seen as possible.
