Paralympics should merge into the Olympics says Basil Zempilas
Macquarie Media Sports Reporter Basil Zempilas believes the Paralympics should merge into the Olympics.
“I wouldn’t have a Paralympics. Sure have the world para-championships but I would have para events on the regular Olympic programs. Because that says to the world, that these people are just as worthy and just as significant as everybody else you see at the Olympic games.”
Basil also speaks about the controversy surrounding the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.
