I do think that London 2012 was a turning point in perception about disability. Not only is there now a huge appetite for Paralympic sport, but I think attitudes did start to change. I've noticed it myself, in people's reactions to me. In the past, people have often seemed apprehensive about how to talk to me because I have cerebral palsy, but I have noticed that since last summer, people seem much more comfortable coming over and talking to me than they ever did before.
If talking were an Olympic sport I'm pretty sure I'd be world class. Move over Wiggins, here I come, making my bid for Gold in the freestyle talking nonsense relay - complete with signature hand gestures, accents and facial expressions. The Italians, who, let's face it, would be the only real competition, wouldn't even come close!
Next summer, on the peerless courts of the All England Club, two players will end the 88-year reign of R. Norris Williams and Hazel Wightman as the mixed doubles champions of Olympic tennis. For the good of the sport, and the good of the Games, let us hope those players are Roger Federer and Martina Hingis.
