Injured soldiers will be trained in circus skills for a spectacular high-wire act at the opening ceremony for the Paralympic Games.
The servicemen are among 50 disabled performers being tutored by Circus Space in Hoxton in an intensive eight-week training course.
Established performers and past Paralympic athletes will also be involved.
Organisers say that the ceremony has been called "Enlightenment" in celebration of "the inspirational spirit of the Paralympic Games that challenges perceptions of human possibility."
The ceremony will also include a fly-past by Aerobility, a charity that trains disabled people to become pilots.
