Arky Posted June 17, 2012 Share Posted June 17, 2012 Just been watching the torch run through Stockton-on-Tees and spotted a runner who was clearly a dancer. He thorougly enjoyed his run & so did everyone watching! The BBC commented on-line about him. What an inspirational story. Here is what was said: - " Kicking off his stint by delivering a high kick is James Hobley. He was diagnosed with autism at four-years-old and had problems with his legs as he tiptoe walked as a toddler. He had to wear braces on both legs and special orthopaedic boots because the tendons up the back of his legs were tight. But he made a recovery and discovered dancing, and has won a full scholarship to the Hammond Dance School in Chester. James adds split jumps to his earlier high kick to complete a snazzy little torchbearer routine" ! 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
