Paralympic World Cup returns to Manchester


The BT Paralympic World Cup (BT PWC) will return to Manchester from 23 to 28 May. The biggest annual multi-sport competition for elite athletes with a disability, the BT PWC will this year showcase swimming, wheelchair basketball and athletics, as well as two international matches: boccia and sitting volleyball.

Six world champions, including discus world record holder Dan Greaves (pictured), are included in a 26-strong Great Britain and Northern Ireland team. Greaves is joined by sprint trio Libby Clegg, targeting her third successive 100m title, Katrina Hart and Richard Whitehead, plus multiple World Cup medallist Paul Blake.

Seventeen-year-old Ola Abidogun, the world junior 100m and 200m champion, will be making his debut at the games in his hometown of Manchester.

Schools can apply for up to 25 free tickets for each event at the BT PWC, which can be used for pupils, teachers and guardians. For further information, visit:
