7. What Are The Paralympics?
Australian Sports Commission paralympics 1996 - Results and athlete profiles by sport.
What are the Paralympics?
A quick rundown:
Special Olympics involves over 500,000 athletes from 8 to 80 with mental retardation. Paralympics provides world-level competition for elite athletes with any disability. This year, for the first time, some individuals with mental retardation will compete in the Paralympic Games. Many of these athletes received their training through Special Olympics. Olympic Games are open to any athletes who qualify.
Competition: While competition and winning are just as important to Special Olympics athletes as those in Paralympics and the Olympic Games, Special Olympics is unique in that it encourages participation and the year- round, lifetime benefits of sports training. We call this "Training for Life." Research shows that Special Olympics participation leads to higher social competence and better self-esteem among participating athletes.
Ability Levels: Every year there are over 15,000 Special Olympics competitive events around the world. Competition in 23 sports is open to athletes of every ability level. Special Olympics does hold World Games every two years, alternating between Summer and Winter Games, to bring together Special Olympics athletes from around the world. The ninth Special Olympics World Summer Games in New Haven, Conn., in July, 1995, involved more then 7,000 athletes from over 140 countries and drew 500,000 spectators. The next Special Olympics World Winter Games will be February 1-8, 1997, in Toronto, Canada.

Whilethe dream of Olympic expansion has faded, the paralympics have bloomed.






... Women T he D aily O nline S ports M agazine T he P aralympics P aradox Laura Kaminker SportsJones Magazine October 21, 2000 The U.S. has the best sports coverage in the world, right? Well, some of the world's greatest athletes are competing right now in Sydney, and you've probably never heard of them. abe Didrikson. Althea Gibson. Billie Jean King. Sharon Rahn Hedrick. In 1984, Hedrick became the first wheelchair athlete to win an Olympic medal. Paraplegic from age 9, Hedrick discovered her athleticism at 19, and went on to a groundbreaking career in both wheelchair racing and basketball. An event unto itself In Atlanta, the crowds were large and enthusiastic. But without the media blitz required to pierce the public’s consciousness, and without the full-scale support of the Olympics themselves, nothing changed. Four years later, Paralympians are still wearily explaining, "No, it’s not the Special Olympics …" For the record, let’s clarify: The Special Olympics are motivational games, an "everybody wins" challenge for people with mental and developmental disabilities. The Paralympics are the Olympics for athletes with physical disabilities. Paralympians are elite athletes who devote their lives to the pursuit of excellence in sport, and who qualify over a period of years through rigorous national and international competitions. They are the best of the best, yet they remain largely invisible to the American public.

    The Big Question: Who Will Host the Paralympics in 2008?
    Tension is already building up in the Games bid process for 2008. Five citiesBeijing (China), Istanbul (Turkey), Osaka (Japan), Paris (France) and Toronto (Canada)are on the candidature list in the bid to host the 2008 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Committee evaluated applications from ten cities for the 2008 Games. Five of the ten applicants did not meet the IOC criteria and will not be included in the list of candidature cities: Bangkok (Thailand), Cairo (Egypt), Havana (Cuba), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and Seville (Spain). In March 2001, the IOC leadership will have another opportunity to limit the field of candidates. The final decision about the host city for the 2008 Games will be made in July 2001 at the 112th IOC Session in Moscow, Russia.
