Description

The London 2012 Paralympic Games aims to be the most watched, most inclusive and most well promoted Paralympics in history. Starting soon after the able-bodied Olympics winds down, there'll be 20 events open for competition including Paralympic Archery, Paralympic Athletics, Paralympic Equestrian, Football 5-a-side, Paralympic Judo, Powerlifting, Paralympic Table Tennis, Wheelchair Fencing and Wheelchair Rugby. It's the first time London has hosted the event and it aims to do so with aplomb. Paralympic athletes have become big celebrities in the UK and it's hoped that their fame can help boost the profile of the Games across the world.
