VIDEO: Jody Cundy and friends say thanks to supporters with home made ‘Hello’ feature as Paralympics get under way

HE missed tonight’s opening ceremony to prepare for first day action but Wisbech Paralympian Jody Cundy was determined to keep his fans upbeat by releasing a homemade video.

As Jody and his colleague Mark Colbourne prepare for the Paralympics, they shot, edited and produced a ‘Hello’ video for supporters.

Jody said it was their way of saying “thank you for the overwhelming support we received from the British public.

“The video was a fantastic opportunity for the whole team to get together and capture some moments from their time in the holding camp and athletes village.”

Jody said: “Making the video was fun; we wanted to get together as a team and show we have personalities outside our day job, but also show some of our preparations we went through in Newport. In doing so we hopefully put a smile on people’s faces.”
