According to NHK Net News Web Easy, The Tokyo Paralympic begins on 24th. About 4,400 athletes from approximately 160 countries and areas are participating it. Many athletes stay at the Paralympic Village at Chuo ku, Tokyo. Inside the Paralympic Village, the center, where wheelchairs and prostheses that athletes uses are to be fixed and to be checked, is to be set up. Because the wheelchairs that are used for Rugby and Tennis are different, technicians are checking numbers of its tires. Necessary goods are divided based on its sizes and types in order to fix them for a short time.

More than 100 technicians will be gathered from 23 countries. There will be no cost to fix.

The stuff at the center has said 「We would like to help the athletes,who have been training for 5 years, to feel comfortable to play at the game」

My thought

This Olympic has ended rather successfully. This is a wonderful news to help people with disability. Wishing the Paralympic success as well despite of what is going on in Tokyo right now.
