In less than 12 months, my fellow Paralympians and I will be battling it out for Paralympic glory and I believe that London 2012 will be the greatest Paralympic Games in history.

Every year Paralympic athletes push the boundaries of their sports and if that continues, as I fully expect it to, next year's Games will be truly remarkable.

Ahead of competing at the BT Paralympic World Cup, I was lucky enough to visit the Olympic Stadium and while it was impressive to walk around the stadium before it was even finished, the thought of performing in front of thousands of people on race day gives me chills down my spine.

From a personal point of view, I am aiming to build on what I achieved in Beijing in 2008 where I won three gold medals and next year I hope to add a further gold in the 4x100m relay. I have no doubt that this will be a massive challenge especially with incredibly talented athletes such as America's Jerome Singleton pushing me every step of the way.

After all the build-up and preparations, by the time the Games come round, I will be more than ready to get performing and I hope as many people as possible will be able to join me in the Olympic Park- don't forget to apply for your tickets!
