Sporting chance for hopefuls.

PARALYMPIC hopefuls stormed the track at nPower's 2010 Regional Athletics Competition for Disabled Athletes.

The competition, held at Birmingham's Alexander Stadium, saw the hopefuls compete alongside 200 of the city's athletes with physical, visual and learning difficulties in a number of sporting events such as javelin throwing.

The event organiser, Dennis Hodgkins, said: "It gives disabled people a chance to participate in and enjoy sport within the wider community."

The medals were presented by Councillor Michael Wilkes, Lord Mayor of Birmingham.
