Assessment Of Paralympics 2012
 
Absolutely Amazing Achievement By Australian Athletes At Paralympics In London

By David Bedwell ACAA Director of Obvius Access  

World Records have been broken and amazing personal and team achievements have been made by participating Australian Athletes. It would probably be unfair to name individual performers as all our and every other competing countries athletes are without doubt Heroes and Heroines.
For Australia, a country with a relatively small population by comparison, to have surpassed America in medal rankings is surely going to inspire future generations of Athletes
It probably also goes to show that governments such as Australia who recognize that if they support people who play sport and may have an impairment that they can transform lives and budgets of literally thousands of people.
The concluding statistics of the London Paralympics will certainly be a milestone in achievement not only for the Participating Paralympians but importantly for in the world wide perception of Athletes with Disabilities.
The attendance figures published by the London 2012 organizers Locog show that 2.7million spectators paid for tickets to attend the Paralympic Games over the 11 day period and that UK free to air exclusive rights TV Channel 4 had at peak 6million UK viewers.
A survey by British Media reported today has shown that 81% of those interviewed stated that the Athletic Achievements of the Paralympians had a positive impact upon their perception of Disability and that there is a need for fairer representation.
It is vitally important now to capitalize upon the Recognition of People with Disabilities that the Paralympics has created. The Right to Maintain or preferably improve disability funding allocations by Governments has I believe been admirably earned for every person by the absolutely amazing achievements of all athletes, and should represent a further major step forward in recognition.
