Olympic Gold Medalist Jessica Ennis Gives Her Support to ParalympicGB
British Airways has teamed up with Olympic athletes Jessica Ennis, Louis Smith, Greg Rutherford and Zoe Smith who all give their messages of support to the ParalympicGB squad, coinciding with the kick off of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
British Airways created the video with the theme 'we are alongside you…' inspired by the definition of Paralympics games which many people are unaware of. Its origin is from the Greek prefix 'Para' which translates as 'beside' or 'alongside', as the Paralympic Games run in parallel to the Olympic Games.
