Paralympics Broadcast in your country?

the Paralympics are right now in Athens
and i highly admire the performence from all this athlets
unfortunally the don´t get the attention they deserve
so i would like to know how much from the paralympics you can watch on tv

in germany we have daily just a 30-35 minute summary.




Proteas - official mascot of the Paralympic games 2004

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

unlike the "normal Athletes" , the paralympic athletes bring home lots of medals for México , so the answer is yes: there is a fair coverage about it. Could be better though.

¡Viva Iveta Benešová!


Jelena Dokic

Martina Hingis

btw.
German chancellor Gerhard Schröder will visit the paralympics
and i read he is the first leader of a country (beside the host country) who will visit the paralympic games

thats great

but on the other hand it is a shame that no other leader of a country have visit the paralympic games before
