If you feel you deserve a bit of a bonus, let me tell you that

tonight's Millionaire Raffle? Let's find out. Tonight's ?1 million
raffle winning number: Check four tickets for a further 20
prizes of ?20,000 in tonight's raffle too. New, time to make more
millionaires with the Lotto medal event results. Are you one of the
lucky winners: Now, after the huge success
of the Olympics and Team GB, we're looking
forward to the Paralympics. Tonight we meet para-canoeist
Nick Beighton as he makes My name's Nick Beighton, I'm a
parakayaker. I always wanted to join the military from a young age. I did
all my training and served for nine years in the end. In 2009 I was on
tour in Afghanistan with an infantry company. I was unlucky enough to
stand on an IUD on a foot patrol. It caused catastrophic injuries and
changed my life. The military was a big part of my life. To move beyond
that you need a focus, a reason to get up day to day, and to have the
goals to push yourself to be fitter and stronger. Sport has a lot of the
same elements that being in the military does. So it's been a really
nice transition to be able to come into the sport post military. Ready,
set, go! To be quite a good paddler you need
strength across the whole body. With Nick he's a bilateral amputee, but
he has good hip drive. The ability to rotate is important in kayaking.
It is how you enter and exit the blade. You are trying to get as much
rotation through the torso as possible. The idea would be the
athlete enters the blade there, lock it in, rotate and exit the blade to
the side. He will repeat this at 120 stroke rate per minute. Nick came
from rowing, so he was used to going backwards. We got him into the boat
and he needs to go forwards. His progression within the sport has
been incredibly quick. It is still going. We are just waiting to find
out whether the Paralympics have come a little too soon to see the
best in Nick. I've only been in the boat 18 months, probably only in the
last two or three months have I felt comfortable technically with what
I'm delivering. I definitely think there's a lot more to come. He's
going to be number one in the world, no doubt about it, because he's got
the determination, the characteristics, the single
mindedness which is needed of an elite athlete. With the team around
him supporting him, he's got everything he needs to do that, if
he decides to. What a brilliant film. Now more Millionaire Raffle
event numbers. Thank you Alan. I'll see you next
Saturday Have a good weekend everybody. Bye-bye.
I will bring you down if I ever catch you up to something larcenous.
