NATIONAL Paralympic Day takes place on Sunday – and Channel 4 will be broadcasting live action from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park PLUS highlights throughout next week.
Paralympic heroes Ellie Simmonds, Ollie Hynd and Jessica-Jane Applegate are among the swimmers who will return to the London Aquatics Centre – scene of their triumphs in London 2012.
Meanwhile, over at the Olympic Stadium David Weir (pictured), Hannah Cockroft and Richard Whitehead lead the GB contingent set to take on their international rivals as the IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final brings the curtain down on the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games.
There will also be highlights from the Mayor of London’s Liberty Festival, which will be presenting another exciting line-up of deaf and disabled artists, musicians and performers in a range of spectacular performances which showcase some of the best of British talent.
Channel 4’s Commissioning Editor for Sport, Stephen Lyle, said:
“National Paralympic Day will be a wonderful celebration and a day of sport featuring some of the world’s finest Paralympians, now household names after their heroic performances in London 2012.
“The centrepiece is a world class swimming event in the iconic Aquatics Centre and Channel 4 will be packaging the very best of the action from the day for sports fans.”
