Paralympics 2018 Closing Ceremony. The curtain has come down on one of the most outstanding sporting events.  Venue Pyeongchang, South Korea. 9-18 March.

A fantastic show.  Full of exotic dancing, music and fireworks and colour.

The crowded auditorium treated to some of the best entertainment shown at a sporting ceremony.

Traditional performances blended and mixed with latest trends. Colours bright, sparkling and magnificent.  Lighting show spectacular.

Skier Menna Fitzpatrick and her guide Jen Kehoe led the team into the ceremony in South Korea. They won Britain’s only gold of the Games

The pair was given the honour after they claimed victory earlier on the last day in the visually-impaired slalom. This GB’s most successful Winter Paralympics of all time. Thanks to their haul of one gold medal, two silvers and a bronze. Great medals won.

Millie Knight and guide Brett Wild also finished their Games on a high with bronze in the slalom. This added to two silvers won from the downhill and super-G.

Britain can be proud. Team GB succeeded winning SEVEN medals.  A goal they set before leaving for the Games.

Britain’s Menna Fitzpatrick and guide Jen Kehoe won gold. It was in the women’s visually-impaired slalom.

Don’t miss highlights from the ceremony.  Watch some amazing scenes. Hear the crowd cheer with joy. Be proud, be fearless. The motto for Paralympics Team GB.

Time to head home.  Have some rest.  Four years ahead it’s Beijing’s turn. Team GB did well so could do even better in 2022.

Hard work ahead.  But time to do it in.  Looking forward to more medals. Will new athletes join the fearless? Fresh talent encouraging. Sport one of worlds biggest challenges. Also where friends are made.
