“We are extremely proud to be the Home of the Paralympics across the screens of Seven and we will once again deliver an exciting, inspiring and unforgettable two weeks of winter action with nine incredible Aussie athletes ready to give it their all for a Paralympic medal.

“Seven’s exclusive coverage of the Winter Olympics reached 12.5 million people and attracted new and younger audiences to Seven. This helped secure Seven’s biggest ratings survey year start since 2018 and we look forward to introducing even more viewers to the incredible Paralympic Winter Games.”

Following Australia’s most successful Olympic Winter Games, Matt Carmichael said this year’s Australian Winter Paralympic team are ready for success.

“Paralympic sport is about pushing limits and proving what1s possible, that’s what our Australian team is all about,” he said.

“Preparing for Beijing in a pandemic has thrown in so many extra challenges, so much more time away from home, but every single one of our incredible athletes has taken it on.
