Played competitively in more than 100 countries, Goalball is one of the most popular Paralympic sports. All athletes wear eye shades, and the object of the game is to roll an audible ball into the opponent's goal. Jonathan Wren, a freelance animator from Buckinghamshire was the designer of this 50p.
