Countdown to the Paralympics | London - ITV News

Countdown to the Paralympics | London - ITV News: "London's Paralympics is expected to attract more viewers, athletes and competing nations than ever before.

Next Wednesday, the opening ceremony will signal the start of 11 days of competition, beamed to millions around the world. Almost 2.3 million of the 2.5 million tickets available have been sold and organisers are whispering that it could be the first ever sell-out.

Unlike the Olympic flame, which was lit in Greece, the Paralympic flame will be created from four national flames."
