The legendary Sir Ludwig Guttmann is credited as the man responsible for founding the Paralympic Games and the Paralympic Movement as a whole. Guttmann was one of the leading pre-World War II neurologists in Germany and worked at the Jewish Hospital in Breslau.

PARA-ATHLETIC star Akeem Stewart said that he will be leaving Tobago to seek a new training base as the facility at the Dwight Yorke Stadium in Bacolet remains unavailable.

The Refugee Olympic Team was a wonderful initiative of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and I congratulate them on enabling ten athletes who are refugees to take part in the Rio 2016 Olympics. How can we not be moved by their individual and collective stories?

Double World Para Athletics Championships gold medallist Akeem Stewart returned home yesterday after his successful stint at the 2017 World Para Athletics Championships which concluded at the Olympic Stadium in London, England on Sunday.

Thomas Bach will miss the Opening Ceremony of the Paralympic Games here tomorrow - the first time the President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will not have attended the event for 32 years.
