Matt Eagles, 43, from Macclesfield, had an incredible journey recently, fulfilling a dream and going to the Olympics as an official photographer.
“17 days, 10 football matches, taekwondo, badminton, basketball and beach volleyball. 3 times at Wembley Stadium, 3 times at Old Trafford, and once at Cardiff.”
“Over 1,500 rail miles and thousands of pictures later, my journey as official Olympics photographer is now complete.”
Matt has had Parkinson’s for many years and has developed a keen interest in sports photography. As he says “there are no barriers to achieving your goals.” This is true and Matt came back with some superb images. You can read his story in more depth here on the Talk Parkinsons blog.
