“Having a site on YouTube will help to further raise awareness for the Paralympic Movement. I encourage everyone out there to utilize this feature and upload any video that could provide another glimpse into the Paralympic world”.

From today on, fans of Paralympic Sport can go to www.YouTube.com/ParalympicSportTV to watch clips of Paralympic sports, athletes and events. Viewers of ParalympicSport.TV on YouTube can enjoy the different features YouTube offers: they can subscribe to the Channel, watch, rate and comment the latest video clips and upload their own videos and much more.

Not only will the IPC regularly upload a selection of video clips from the IPC’s internet TV channel www.ParalympicSport.TV but also encourages Paralympic athletes and all fans of Paralympic Sport to upload their Paralympic content on the YouTube channel.
