Today is the opening day of the London 2017 World Para Athletics Championships. Approximately 1,300 athletes from 100 countries are expected to take part, contesting 213 medal events. The competition will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the same venue that staged athletics events during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The image we selected for this week’s Pic of the Week was taken by Martin Parratt and features one of the wheelchair racers taking part in the London Marathon.
