The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has released the final 2018 edition of its magazine “The Paralympian,”. You can read an online copy here

The cover photo is Colombia’s Euclides Grisales during his gold medal match at the World Boccia Championships.

There is a focus on the World Para Swimming Championships which includes reference to Britains Louise Fiddes (S14).

The main feature story rewinds to 10 years ago, when Beijing, China, hosted the 2008 Paralympics and sparked the inspiration for change in the nation’s impairment perceptions.

Rewind even further to 1948, when the Stoke Mandeville Games were held and eventually evolved into the Paralympics. “Digital Dynamics” shows how people around the world celebrated Stoke Mandeville’s 70th anniversary on social media.
