Highlight Films of the 1987 (Zagreb) and 1989 (Duisburg) World University Games. Nice footage of the opening and closing ceremonies in each. Zagreb film is in Serbo-Croatian and the Duisburg film is in German. Duisburg film appears to also include some footage rehearsals for the opening ceremony.

Double WOW! The first two-thirds of the Cablevision live telecast of the Opening Ceremony of the 1984 Paralympics on Long Island, New York. The games were still known as the International Games for the Disabled at the time. The second video is more footage of the ceremony with President Reagan's opening address. Also, a highlight video of the 1984 Winter Paralympics in Innsbruck that has some footage of the opening ceremonies and includes highlights of the 1988 Summer Paralympics in Seoul. Enjoy!
