The Rio Paralympic Games are well underway and our athletes are in the best shape we’ve ever seen with the medal tally stacking up higher and higher by the day.
Our athletes have shown tremendous strength, resilience and humility and we are proud to have them represent our nation at the Games.
The Australian Paralympic Committee is based in Sydney Olympic Park with their headquarters having been grounded here for over a decade. Many of our Paralympic athletes use the facilities in the Park to train and compete in preparation for the Games.
Here at Sydney Olympic Park, the legacy of the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games is something that burns bright in our minds and what better way to celebrate this than to light the Olympic Cauldron one last time this year for the 16th anniversary of the Sydney 2000 Games.
Head to Jacaranda Square on Thursday 15 September to watch our Aussie athletes take on the rest of the world and then follow us to Cathy Freeman Park to light the Cauldron in honour of the 16th anniversary of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games!
