      They'll be London after the Olympics. I don't think it's on television. However, I think they stream some medal events online

    Well done Channel 4 for this, going to be immense. More inspiring than the 'normal' olympics

    I think one of the most amazing of these people is Oscar Pistorius who will compete in both the Olympics and the Paralympics.

    4 years time we'll be seeing Taylor Morris on the paralympic podium I'd say

  • Ryno!

    That video is amazing. Too bad it makes me feel like a lazy piece of crap for not being as awesome as those guys, and I am fortunate enough to still have all my limbs.

    It's the London Paralympics 29th August – 9th September. On UK's channel 4. Make sure you see wheelchair rugby, it is insane. I take my hat off to all the paralympians.

    No Excuses!

  • meeeee

    good for Channel 4, in Mexico nobody seems to care for the paralympics ever and there is no way to watch it … but thanks to the internet I'll find a way…

    All the Chivers and Chivettes may already know this, but it was news to me a couple of weeks ago. The "Para" in paralympics doesn't refer to paralyzed or paraplegic or anything like that. It's from the root for parallel (beside, alongside), and refers to a competition held in parallel with the olympic games. I felt like a doofus for not knowing that, and thought some here (as the Chivers and Chivettes are higher quality people than most) might be interested. KCCO at both games!

  • Grant

    Thanks again, Chive. You never cease to amaze.

  • Dave

    You're damn right they're superhumans. I cannot wait to check out some of the Paralympics this year!

  • Proud South African

    Watch out for Oscar Pistorius also known as "Blade Runner" who is a double amputee and who will also be competing with able bodied athletes in the Olympics. Truly inspirational…

  • Paralympian

    I am a former Paralympian. This video really touched me. You will likely not see any TV coverage in the US but you can catch it on the internet here.

    • UK Viewer

      The paralympics are pretty big here in the UK (mostly because we're good at it). I'm glad Channel 4 are covering it as they usually do a pretty good job of making things fun and informative.

      I'm way more excited about the Para's that the normal Olympics.
