IPC President @andrewparsonsg shared the spirit of the games and said “The Olympic Truce for peace during the Olympic and Paralympic Games is a UN Resolution adopted by consensus by 193 Member States at the 76th UN General Assembly. It must be respected and observed not violated.

At the IPC we aspire to a better and more inclusive world, free from discrimination, free from hate, free from ignorance and free from conflict.

Here in Beijing, Paralympic athletes from 46 different nations will compete with each other, not against each other.

Through sport they will showcase the best of humanity and highlight the values that should underpin a peaceful and inclusive world.”

Let’s go athletes
