Three-time Paralympic club thrower champion Stephen Miller's delicate prose contrasts starkly with his on-field persona.
The poet from the north-east - a die-hard Newcastle United fan - wants a fourth gold medal in London, and he's already testing the very limits of his capabilities.
He asks himself: "Are you prepared to work harder than everybody else? Are you prepared to push yourself that little bit further?"
