TeamGB Olympians and Paralympians were in Manchester on Monday evening for their home-coming parade.

The parade started at the Museum of Science and Industry and ended in Manchester’s Town Hall in Albert square where all the athletes gathered on Stage. Kaiser Chiefs started off the proceedings with an energetic performance of their hits including Ruby and Rebecca Ferguson ended the parade by performing Heros (originally by the unforgettable David Bowie).

It was an unforgettable experience, with spirits high despite the miserable rain; the crowds turned out in their thousands to help show their support and gratitude for the dedication these amazing athletes have shown. Although it was a day of celebration, it was also an emotional day, to see such inspirational people doing what they do best.
