I'd like to start a discussion on the current state of the Paralympics and what it could be in the future. Let's hash out the pros and cons of the Paralympic Games being staged before, alongside, and after the Olympics. Let's talk event logistics, impacts on media, political influence, effect on athletes, etc. There are so many angles to look at. At first thought, I'd really like it to be staged during the Olympics, by extending the Olympic program another two weeks to accommodate Paralympic events being fully integrated throughout. I mean, "para" infers that they run parallel to the Olympics. Last time I checked, AFTER isn't "running parallel." Further analysis to come!
Genuinely think this is worth of its own thread as its gone under the radar a bit, but could be very serious.... More @ http://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1040640/ipc-to-hold-crisis-talks-with-rio-mayor-to-try-to-ensure-paralympics-go-ahead#.V7G7Gojh5xS.twitter
