Boccia showcased in London’s Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar Square has been used to showcase the Paralympic sport
of boccia as part of the celebrations counting down to the start of
the 2012 Games.

London Mayor Boris Johnson was taught how to play boccia, a
bowling sport designed for athletes with severe disabilities, by
gold medal-winning Paralympians and members of London Boccia
clubs.

Boccia is a sport Britain is expected to excel in during the
2012 Paralympics, which begin two years from Sunday. Britain’s team
is ranked No. 1 and won the gold medal at the Beijing Games in
2008.
