We are engaged in various out door sport activities and more people are invited to come on board. It was on record that the disabled received more gold in the last Paralympic olympic in 2012.
In his closing speech IPC President Sir Philip Craven described London 2012 as “the greatest Paralympic Games ever” and with record crowds, numbers of broadcasters and athletes and countries taking part combined with record breaking performances from athletes and unprecedented media coverage it was easy to see why.
The Games had a significant impact on British society. Research ahead of the Closing Ceremony found:
• 1 in 3 UK adults changed their attitude towards people with an impairment;
• 65% agree the Paralympics delivered a breakthrough in the way people with an impairment are viewed in the country – up from a 40% expectation in June 2010;
• eight out of ten (81%) British adults thought the Paralympics had a positive impact on the way people with an impairment are viewed by the public;
• the Paralympic Games is about ability, not disability – and are about what people can do, not what they can’t do.
