Chinese Paralympians Make Their Manchester Debut

An interesting article in The Times discusses Chinese athletes attending this year's Paralympics World Cup in Manchester. The article notes that this is the first time China has sent a complete team, this year composing of 50 athletes competing in each of the 4 sports. It also talks about China's overwhelming dominance in Athens 2004 and their predicted dominance this time around.

The Paralympics, which will take place 2 weeks after the Olympics in September will be a great opportunity for those who couldn't get tickets to take a peak inside all those beautiful venues, especially the Bird's Nest and Water Cube. For anyone interested, tickets are supposed to go on sale this Sunday.
