Paralympic and 2012 London games
The Paralympic Games take place once every four years (with a Winter Games two years after each summer edition of the Games) in the same city and year as the Olympic Games. The Paralympic Games is an elite multi-sport event for disabled athletes with a disability and are a direct "parallel" to the Olympic Games – hence the name.
