About Us

Firstly and to avoid any lingering doubts you may have, we are not connected in any way to the International Paralympic Committee or anyone else, officially or otherwise, responsible for any aspect of the organising or running of the Athens Paralympics (see our terms and conditions). We,, are completely independent.

We are based in Europe, with a global network of authorative contributors knowledgeable about disabled sport, most of whom are or were players in the sports they cover. Everybody connected to is committed to our non-commercial status and gives their time freely and enthusiastically.

The internet site we are running,, is designed to maximise your enjoyment and understanding of the Paralympics from a sporting perspective.

We welcome your criticism and ask you, the reader, to respond to articles. The most reliable way to contact us is using our online form, to which we endeavour to reply reasonably quickly.


About this site

This site is optimized for a resolution of 800x600 and we like to think it is reasonably accessible. However, not all text size will increase when you change text size in internet explorer, though it should on articles pages. This is a design compromise which most news sites make and we acknowledge that we have done it as well...we recommend trying the Opera web browser as it overcomes this problem.
