Paralympic Team 2016 launch

The 2016 Australian Paralympic Team set to compete at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games was officially launched last week.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull greets Australia Paralympic co-captains Daniela Di Toro and Kurt Fearnley at the team launch in Sydney.

More than 30 Rio hopefuls and representatives from each Australian Paralympic Team since 1960 also attended the launch, with just 72 days remaining until the Games’ Opening Ceremony on 7 September, 2016.

The APC is currently preparing to send 170 athletes from every Australian state and territory, across 15 sports to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.


The Paralympic Games has so many awesome events with ability, talent, commitment and courage on display! The 360HR Solutions team is pleased to be a sponsor of Kurt Fearnley and will be watching Rio from afar and cheering on all those wonderful athletes from around the world!
