APC President looks ahead to the Toronto 2015 Parapan Am Games

Americas Paralympic Committee President Jose Luis Campo predicts great things in Toronto as 1,600 athletes from 28 countries start their final preparations. “Two years ago I witnessed how successful the London 2012 Paralympic Games were in Great Britain. I really believe that the TO2015 Parapan American Games can have a similar impact in Canada in terms of raising the profile of para-sport and changing perceptions of people with an impairment.”
Campo believes that the size and scale of the Games in Toronto, combined with Canada’s track record for staging major para-sport events, will not only draw the best athletes to compete in the city but attract new countries too.
“Canada has a superb track record for Paralympic sport and staging major para-sport events,” explained Campo.
“In 1967, Winnipeg staged the first Wheelchair Pan Am Games, whilst Toronto staged the Americas first Paralympic Games in 1976 – an event that saw amputee and visually impaired athletes take part for the first time.
“In 2010, Vancouver staged a hugely successful Paralympic Winter Games and in between a number of other world and regional events have been held there.
“The 2015 Parapan American Games will attract more countries than ever before and I am sure the event will help enhance Canada’s global reputation for staging major international sporting events.”

DB Schenker is proud to be the official logistics company for these games.
