Paralympic games 2012 stats


Next summer is going to be a bloody nightmare for us, especially between August 29th and September 9th, for this is when the Paralympics take place and because we are a disabled related site it will be our duty to cover this prestigious event.

Don't get us wrong; we are looking forward to the's just the foreseeable office work which we aren't too keen about. You know the kind of things, publishing the programme, telling you the results, naming and shaming the athletics who fail the drug tests - the normal kind of stuff.

Anyway, mustn't grumble!

Whilst we crack on and start making contact with the 2012 office and track down the appropriate people for our press passes (that's turning out to be a marathon in itself!) here's a few facts and figures about the games...
