My involvement with Rob Howell came at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. I was working for LOCOG ( London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games) as the Sports Information Specialist for athletics and Rob was working as a volunteer reporter for the Paralympic News Service (PNS).
It was clear that Rob is an outstanding journalist with a strong sense of editorial values and an excellent ability to report a story accurately, and also in an engaging way. Rob's stories from the Paralympic Games athletics events were widely used by the international media and the material within them, especially the quotes, was published around the world. In addition, working with Rob was a very enjoyable experience, not least because of his enthusiasm and diligent approach.
