James Moore has explained it best, “If the Olympics were fully integrated, with para-events running alongside traditional events, organising committees wouldn't be able to let the Paralympics fall by the wayside when issues such as funding intervene.”

The Paralympics has been great for raising awareness of disabilities in the community, but it’s time to take it to the next level. It’s time to recognise that people with disabilities are normal and don’t need to be identified as different in our society. With the help of the NDIS, Australia has raised the quality of living for many people that have mostly been forgotten in the past. It’s not like this in so many other parts of the world though. We have the opportunity in 2032 to show every country just how much value there is when we celebrate all types of abilities, equally.

It took six years for women to be included in the Olympic games after it was reformed in 1894, but still remained a male majority for nearly a century. The question is then, can we take these lessons and do what took one hundred years for women into ten years for people with disabilities?
