Born without arms: inspirational mother and son live life to the full
Linda Bannon and her son Timmy suffer from Holt Oram - a rare genetic condition due to which they were born without arms. Despite their condition they live a happy life in a non-modified home. Amazingly, they do everything with their feet and Timmy is a young sports star excelling in swimming and taekwondo. Linda is also studying to become a motivational speaker despite working through the day as a kindergarten teacher. We have been invited to spend two days with them as they go about their hectic lives.

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.
The new Under Armour kit suits the freestylers as it is made from stretch woven fabric with ventilation panels to give them greater flexibility, while keeping them cool. Go to UA.com to get your New Armour.
