The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is offering four lucky fans the chance to go to the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games at the Olympic Stadium on 28 July.

All people have to do is tweet their favourite Paralympic Memory on Twitter using #ParalympicMemory to @IPCAthletics and follow us or post a picture to the app on the IPC Athletics Facebook page with a caption for why it is their favourite memory of the Paralympic Games.

The competition runs from today (18 July) until 17:00 CEST Friday 26 July, 2013. One pair of tickets each will be given to the Twitter and Facebook competition winners respectively.

Fans will be able to see the Paralympic stars of London 2012 compete again nearly one year on from the most successful Paralympic Games ever, at the stadium where it all happened.

David ‘Weirwolf’ Weir, four-time Paralympic Champion in the 800m, 1,500m, 5,000m and marathon T54 has been confirmed, as well as Jonnie Peacock who will be fresh from the IPC Athletics World Championships in Lyon, France where he hopes to have defended his 100m T44 world record against American Richard Browne – which has become one of the greatest emerging rivalries since London.

Two-time Paralympic Champion and all-round British superstar since the Games, Hannah Cockroft, will also be lining up in the 100m T33/34.

The tweet with the most re-tweets will win the Twitter competition and the image with the greatest number of votes on Facebook will win.

If you can’t wait until 28 July to catch some more athletics action, then the 2013 IPC Athletics Championships kick off in Lyon tomorrow (19 July) and will be live-streamed on ParalympicSport.TV as well as shown live on Channel 4 in the UK and some European Broadcasting Union countries.
