Olympics and paralympics Australian Paralympic Team - Athens 2004

The 12th Paralympic Games will b h eld from 17 to 28 September, 2004 in Athens and will involve more than 4000 athletes representing 146 countries. At these games, Australia will be attempting to defend its title as the world's greatest Paralympic nation - a title it received after finishing number one on the medal tally at the Sydney Paralympic Games.

The Paralympic Games is the secondlargest world gathering of athletes, after the Olympic Games. The Australian Paralympic Team will compete in 12 of the possible 19 sports, including athletics, swimming, cycling, equestrian, judo, wheelchair basketball (men and women), archery, powerlifting, sailing,rugby, shooting and tennis.

Our team will consist ofapproximately 160 athletes and 90 staff including medicos, coaches andadministrators. The Australian Paralympic Committee (APC), a registered charity, is responsible for financing our team for Athens. (It willcost almost $10,000 per person.) To do this we will need to raise $2 million.

Without sufficient funds, the team size to Athens will be reduced.

Whilst the Government provides funds so our athletes can train at an elite level, the costs of sending the team to the Paralympic Games is met by corporate and communitysupport.
