The Paralympics have officially come to a close and with them, the end of the Tokyo 2020 Games. Staged hot on the heels of the Olympics, the Paralympics were filled with heartwarming moments, from the meaningful opening and closing ceremonies to Japan’s record-breaking medal wins.
With no spectators in the stands, this year’s Games were unlike any other. However, the Paralympics proved themselves to be an inspirational and memorable event during the pandemic. With audiences watching from all around the world, the Games became the ideal platform to introduce a new human rights movement known as WeThe15. The Paralympics also saw the triumphant arrival of two Afghan athletes who managed to make it over to Tokyo to compete despite the political turmoil in the country.
