Last quote about Paralympic Games

Herb Wesson
Hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games for the first time in 44 years is a golden opportunity for LA. In 1932 and 1984, the Olympic Games helped to transform our city for the better – not just through bricks and mortar, but through new opportunities for our communities to watch, play and benefit from sport. Over the next 11 years and beyond, we want to bring those benefits to young people across this city on an unprecedented scale.feedback

Philip Craven, Vladimir Putin, Mário Andrada and Vladimir Lukin, are those who have spoken the most about this topic. Philip Craven said: “With 291 days to go until Pyeongchang 2018, there is not a moment to waste. 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.”.

Our 120-year-old dream of hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games remains alive. Our model offered a vision for change, especially relevant for those mid-sized cities that dare to bid for the games. We continue to believe in the model and we hope to have the chance one day to prove the case.feedback

Marx Beltrão

England, the last country to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games, grew by 0.92 percent from 2011 to 2012. In subsequent years, the average increase was 5 percent a year. The numbers are extremely positive ... they show that we can still make great progress.feedback

Vladimir Putin

Lots of questions arise. Healthy athletes legally take medications outlawed for others, while people, who obviously suffer from grave illnesses and disabilities, are barred from participation in the Paralympic Games on sheer suspicion.feedback

Marieke Vervoort

After the Paralympic Games, when I quit, I'm going to enjoy every little moment in my life and I'm going to put more energy in my family and friends, which I couldn't do with top sports because I had to train every day.feedback

Maria V. Zakharova

(He) showed solidarity with people who were disgracefully treated in an inhumane way in not being allowed to compete at the Paralympics.feedback

Vladimir Putin

The decision to disqualify our Paralympians is outside the bounds of law, morality and humanity. It is simply cynical to punish those for whom sport became the reason for being, those who by their own example give hope and self-belief to billions of people with disabilities.feedback

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

Mário Andrada

There is no intention to compromise the Paralympic experience. We have discussed this with the IPC and are making arrangements.feedback

Mário Andrada

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

David Hertz

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

Bernard Lapasset

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

Yoshiro Mori

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
