The Spanish Paralympic Committee has announced the sponsorship agreement renewal with the public lottery company Loterias y Apuestas del Estado in the build-up to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
Under its terms, Spanish Paralympic athletes will continue being awarded grants, be able to attend major international competitions and be provided high-quality training material.
The agreement was signed by Spanish National Paralympic Committee (NPC) Secretary General and IPC Governing Board Member Miguel Sagarra, and Loterias President Inmaculada Garcia.
