Sunday will see the launch of a pilot education programme from the International Paralympic Committee. Proud Paralympian will be introduced at the IPC Powerlifting World Cup in Dubai.

Designed to support athlete development both on and off the field, the programme is aimed at Paralympians and para-athletes who aspire to compete in the Paralympic Games.

“Our aim is to support them with their lives as athletes and role models and do the same for the next generation of aspiring Paralympians, taking a 360 degree approach to their career development,” says IPC chief executive officer, Xavier Gonzalez.

He went on to say how important Paralympians are as role models: “All athletes have the potential to inspire future generations, but para-athletes are in a unique position. By redefining the limits of what is possible, as active citizens they can help change perceptions and contribute towards a more inclusive society.”

The programme will cover Paralympic history, fair play, media skills and human rights and encompasses training for athletes who have not yet competed in the Paralympics.

The pilot will be used to make changes and improvements to the materials and the programme will be officially launched next year, for the run up to the Rio 1916 Paralympic Games.
