Heather Mills, former wife of Sir Paul McCartney, has said that she is attempting to qualify for the ski team in the 2014 Paralympics. Heather had her left leg amputated below the knee after a 1993 collision with a police motorbike and is now dreaming of a gold medal at the 2014 Paralympics.

Some have called this a publicity stunt but Heather’s two years of struggling up a steep learning curve with countless broken limbs and torn ligaments alongside five second tier race victories say otherwise! Many of the British team have already been impressed with Heather’s dedication, calling her “very focused.”

Many staff and students at Concorde had a fantastic time at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games here in Britain, with many staff members including our own Vanessa and Cherry even getting involved behind the scenes with organisation and volunteer work with everything from individual events to the amazing opening and closing ceremonies.

It’s only a couple of short years until the 2014 Olympics so now is a great time to brush up on your English language skills, and learning English in England is one of the best possible ways to fully immerse yourself in the language so you can gain the confidence you need.
