2. TERHAD TERHAD Section B [30 marks] Question 2 Read the following text. Then answer question (a) (j). The Paralympic Games The Paralympic Games is the second largest sporting event in the world today, the first largest being the Olympic Games. In a very short time, the Paralympic Games established itself as a major on the Olympic calendar. The winter event made its debut in 1976 in Ornskoldsvik, Sweden but the concept is much older. It is amazing to think that the Paralympic Games had their humble beginnings less than fifty years ago, in Aylesbury, England. The earliest beginning of athletic games for people with disabilities can be traced back to World War II and the efforts of Dr Ludwig Guttmann. He was a strong advocate of using sports therapy to enhance the quality of life for people who were injured or wounded during World War II. For this, he was known as the Father of Sports for People with Disabilities. Dr Guttmann organised the 1948 International Wheelchair Games, He made sure that it coincided with the 1948 London Olympics. His dream, was of worldwide sports competition for people with disabilities to be held every four years as the equivalent of the Olympic Games. Twelve years later, his dream became a reality. The first Paralympic Games was held in Rome, Italy, in 1960 and involved 400 athletes from 23 countries, Originally only wheelchair athletes were invited to compete. Since that time, the Paralympic Games have grown dramatically. The present day Paralympic Games include six major classifications of athletes. The word Paralympicderives from the Greek preposition para (beside or alongsideand the word lympic. Its meaning is that Paralympics are the parallel Games to the Olympics and illustrates how the two movements exist side-by-side. 3.
