Chinese Flag Raised at London Paralympics


The flags of the 165 nations competing at the London Paralympics are now flying high in the athletes' village.

Representatives of China's 417-member delegation on hand at the flag-raising ceremony, as China's athletes prepare to defend their medal table topping performance from Beijing.

Amid distinctive British music, members of the Chinese delegation arrived at the Athletes' Village square. Scores of British actors welcomed them with British drama. Among them were disabled actors.

Later on, the Chinese athletes and officials witnessed the national flag-raising ceremony. Then Mayor of the Athletes' Village, Eva Loeffler, delivered a warm welcome speech.

Chinese Paralympians won an enviable 89 golds and 211 medals in total four years ago in Beijing. But leaders of the delegation stress that the Chinese athletes will not only focus on grabbing golds in London.

Jia Yong, Deputy Chief of Paralympic Delegation of China, said, "I think the meaning of Paralympics is more than higher, faster, and stronger. It's a major encouragement for disabled people to take part in exercise and sports. It's an important channel for them to recover and re-integrate themselves in society. So our first and foremost goal at the Paralympics is to exhibit the spirit of Chinese Paralympians and communicate with athletes from other countries. This means more for us than just winning golds."
