Today, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has relaunched its official website www.paralympic.org.
Just in time for Friday’s celebration of the 20-Year Anniversary of the IPC, the website has received a complete face-lift with new features including accessible Flash Animation, RSS Feed, News Widgets, a Calendar and an embedded link to IPC's YouTube channel.
The new website will continue to be the main source of information to the Paralympic Family and fans of Paralympic Sport. Established sections like the Media Centre and the Athlete Club will continually be extended and updated.
IPC CEO Xavier Gonzalez stated: "The IPC's new website is modern, dynamic and much easier to navigate. With new features and a new look, we want to make Paralympic.org a one-step source for information, pictures and videos on the Paralympic Games and Paralympic Movement. The website is an important part of our effort to raise awareness and spread the Paralympic Mission and Vision."
In close collaboration with Netempire AG - responsible for concept, project management, technical implementation and web design - the IPC has ensured that the site remains accessible according to W3C standards and easy to use.
