New Delhi, Sept 7: Para Sports Foundation general secretary and former intertiol athlete Pradeep Raj has demanded that the 2016 Paralympics, which start in Rio de Janeiro from Wednesday, be broadcast over television.
Addressing a press conference to demand television broadcast of Rio Paralympics, Raj launched a scathing attack on officials travelling to the Paralympics, saying most of them either spend their time shopping or vacationing during such sporting events.
“Most officials, who couldn’t go for the Rio Olympics have been sent this time to Rio. These are powerful people and they force the athletes to take them as coaches,” Raj said. (IANS)
