Listen to extracts made by children and musicians in the Mandeville Group of schools.
The children from Mandeville School interviewed Paralympians and explored the emotions behind training, motivation, sporting successes and standing on a podium to receive a Gold medal.
The music is divided into 5 parts as follows:
Part 1: Nerves on the podium, excitement as hearing the national anthem followed by joy.
Part 2: The repetition of training, faster and faster, harder and harder.
Part 3: Motivation - an uplifting motivational piece.
Part 4: Sporting successes: music that sounds like various sports - dressage/equestrian, table tennis, basketball.
Part 5: Softer version of Part 1 to represent the reflection on success.
