Believe in our Paralympians
The Australian Paralympic Committee (APC) believes in changing lives through sport. Creating opportunities with disabilities is at the heart of everything the APC do. Every hour of every day is spent selecting and preparing the Paralympic Team for each Games. Right now, our summer athletes are in training preparing for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
