The London Paralympics will begin on 29 August 2012, when disabled atheletes will take part in the worlds largest multinational sporting event in the world of disabled sports.

Staging the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games is a unique and inspiring experience. It is also an honour, one that the UK last enjoyed in 1948. More than 50 years on, we will host the greatest sporting and cultural show on earth again. It is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for all of us. We will have the chance to show the country, the world, and ourselves, at our best.

The International Olympic Committee says that London 2012 will enable the country to provide facilities and services for elite athletes, as well as encouraging participation in sport well after the 2012 Games are over. The Olympic Park in East London “will become a model of social inclusion, opening up opportunities for education, cultural and skills development and jobs for people across London and Great Britain” says the IOC.

The Paralympic Games in London will have 11 events within the main Olympic Park in Stratford – athletics, swimming, table tennis, wheelchair rugby, goalball, wheelchair fencing, archery, seven-a-side and five-a-side football, track cycling and wheelchair tennis.  Powerlifting, judo, wheelchair basketball, boccia, sitting volleyball will all take place at the nearby ExCeL Centre, equestrian events at Greenwich Park and shooting at the Royal Artillery Barracks.
