NZ team ready for Paralympic games

From Morning Report, 8:53 am on 24 August 2021

New Zealand takes a team of 29 into the Paralympics in Tokyo with more than half attending their first Games, while the rest are seasoned and succesful veterans.

The Games start today without spectators as Covid-19 cases continue to rise in the Japanese capital.

Following New Zealand's successful Olympics earlier this month the New Zealand paralympians have plenty to strive for across athletics, canoeing, cycling, swimming, shooting and wheelchair rugby.
