• Games will thrive in dramatic Rio backdrop


    PARIS: With just over a year to go before the Rio Paralympics, International Paralympic Committee (IPC) president Philip Craven told Agence France-Presse he is confident the 2016 Games will be a record-breaking success. The Paralympics will run from September 7 to 16 next year, just after the Olympics in the Brazilian city, and Craven believes the combination of the Brazilians’ love of sport and the dramatic backdrop provided by Rio de Janeiro itself will bring improved ticket sales and a record television audience.
