2012 London Paralympic Games

Today marks 1,000 days to go to the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
To mark the milestone, the pictograms representing each Paralympic sport and discipline have been released. They will help with wayfinding in 2012 and will also be used as a tool to help educate people leading up to and during the Games.

It's not too late for potential competitors to start training. A nationwide talent recruitment drive has also been launched today by UK Sport, the English Institute of Sport and the British Paralympic Association. They're looking for people with an impairment who think they might have what it takes to compete in 2012 with an online registration available.

Sebastian Coe, Chair of the London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG), said: "In 1,000 days' time we will be welcoming the Paralympic Games home and we will deliver a spectacular showcase for Paralympic sport.

"This is a golden opportunity to raise awareness of Paralympic sport, challenge stereotypes about disability and secure a legacy which will have every disabled child getting greater access to sport.

"As the clock counts down to 2012, there is still time to get involved in the Paralympic Games, and still time to become part of the British team."
