Tube map celebrates British Paralympians’ success

Transport for London has celebrated the success of British Paralympians at the London Games with a limited edition tube map.

The new version of the map replaces London stations with British Paralympic medal winners — including five horses.

Sports journalists Alex Trickett and David Brooks created the map and para dressage medallists and their mounts can be found on the northern line.

Elephant and Castle station has been swapped for team gold medallist Lee Pearson, with his ride Gentleman just one stop further along the line at Borough.

The other team riders Sophie Wells, Sophie Christiansen and Deb Criddle are also featured with their horses. And individual grade II gold medallist Natasha Baker is at Warren Street with her ride Cabral replacing Goodge Street stop.

“Because so many medals were won in relatively few sports [the map] was a challenge,” said Alex.

“But we’ve managed to capture the fantastic success of ParalympicsGB athletes after a truly spectacular summer of sport.”

The map follows a previous edition celebrating the achievements of Team GB and another featuring names of past Olympic greats.

It measures 60x80cm and costs £49.99.
