Last quote about Paralympic Games

Scott Blackmun
This obviously makes it more likely that both Paris and Los Angeles will be able to host the Olympic and Paralympics Games, and that's a good thing. There are going to be a lot of questions if they decide to go forward with a dual award because we haven't done it before.feedback

The IPC task force will next update the IPC governing board in September and if the obligations have not been fully met by then, it will be very difficult for the Russian Paralympic Committee to have its suspension lifted in time to enter its athletes into the Paralympic Winter Games. Clearly, with this timeline in mind, unless something dramatic changes in the next few weeks, the Russia will not be able to enter its athletes into the London 2017 World Para Athletics Championships.”.

Phillip Craven - International Paralympic Committee

We have enormous sympathy for the Russian athletes who will now miss out on the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. It is a sad day for the Paralympic Movement, but we hope also a new beginning. We hope this decision acts as a catalyst for change in Russia and we can welcome the Russian Paralympic Committee back as a member safe in the knowledge that it is fulfilling its obligations to ensure fair competition for all.feedback

Richard Lane - International Paralympic Committee

The Rio Paralympics can still be remembered for the achievements of disabled athletes on the track, not for budget cuts and low ticket sales.feedback

Phillip Craven - International Paralympic Committee

Never before in the 56-year history of the Paralympic Games have we faced circumstances like this. Since becoming aware of the full scale of the problem, we have focused all of our efforts on finding solutions to the problems.feedback

Phillip Craven - International Paralympic Committee

Currently, we have around 10 countries who, even if the grants are paid, may struggle to cover the cost of their travel to the games. The IPC is working with them to find solutions and ensure their participation here in Rio.feedback

Phillip Craven - International Paralympic Committee

Currently we have around 10 countries who, even if the grants are paid, may struggle to cover the cost of their travel to the Games. We want full participation here. We want all eligible countries to send their athletes to the Games. It's what the athletes deserve, and it is what the athletes want after years of training and dedication.feedback

When it comes to the management of cash in events like this, we have enough friends and partners to fix all the problems.feedback

Vladimir Lukin

Over the period of more than three years, either 35 or 20 doping samples have been found but they have disappeared and the names [of Para-athletes] are not given. However, a decision was made on this ground to suspend the RPC's membership. This means an actual ban on our athletes to compete at the Paralympics.feedback

Vladimir Lukin

We are currently considering the kind of arbitration we need. Investigation of doping cases should be continued but it should not turn political. It is necessary that innocent athletes fulfill their rights to take part in the Paralympics. Otherwise it will be a flagrant violation of human rights.feedback

Vitaly Mutko

This is an unprecedented decision [the ban]. A lot of athletes, a lot of people with disabilities are affected. We will be providing every support to the Russian Paralympic Committee.feedback

Philip Craven - International Paralympic Committee

The McLaren report marked one of the darkest days in the history of all sport. The actions were a body blow to clean, fair, honest sport. The Russia state-run program of cheating questioned the integrity and credibility of sport as we know it.feedback

After the Olympics and the Paralympics, this place will continue as a social business.feedback

Paris, as one of the world's most iconic and cosmopolitan cities, would provide a unique and stunning backdrop for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games through its historic landmarks and breathtaking venues.feedback

Let us all unite our efforts under the new Games emblems and work together as one to ensure the realisation of a truly inspirational Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020.feedback

Vladimir Putin

I very much hope the Paralympics will help us reduce the degree of passions around Ukraine.feedback

Matthias Guett

It's very important that the wider public and the resorts understand about the needs of people with an impairment so they have everything fully accessible and it starts from the ski lift down to the restaurant and accessible toilets.feedback
