Paralympic Games, a year away

Today marks 12 months to go until the 2012 London Paralympic Games, with the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC) saying the London Games are likely to be the most competitive in history.
The APC is hoping to name a team of 305 athletes and officials, 38 more than the team which competed at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games, and potentially the largest team Australia has sent overseas to compete at the Paralympic Games. Australia finished in fifth place on the medal table in Beijing and Athens, and APC President Greg Hartung believes a top-five finish is achievable once again.
The 2012 London Paralympic Games take place from August 29-September 9 2012.
