We are so inspired by the Paras we just rocked up the code to reflect it!
Inspiring Paralypmics have gripped the attention of so many of us this week. We have continued our support of the Olympics and Paralympics but are changing the code to be inline with the subtle differences of the two sports. The first modern Olympics took place in 1896, whereas the Paralympics first officially took place in 1960. It is due to this that Olympics tend to be much better funded than the Paralympics. It is also due to this that most people know of the Olympics, but fewer have heard about the Paralympics.
The Paralympics were intended to be to disabled athletes what Olympics are for able-bodied athletes; however, there is a large funding gap between the Olympics and Paralympic athletes, which has caused the Paralympians to strive for treatment equal with non-disabled Olympic athletes. Something that is an ongoing struggle, but Paralympians have now been getting more attention than they previously were.
