International Paralympic Day (IPD), Bonn August 27th 2005.
On 27 August, on and around the Marktplatz in Bonn, Germany, the International Paralympic Day 2005 will further boost excitement about Paralympic sport and its athletes.
For every demonstrated sport (Athletics (Long Jump), Nordic Skiing (Biathlon - shooting only) Sitting Volleyball, Table Tennis and Wheelchair Basketball), there will be athletes on location who can discuss their experiences and pass on advice. On the day of the event, numerous national and international world-class athletes will showcase their sport. The visitors have the chance to experience a game with the present Wheelchair Basketball Champions Cup holders RSV Lahn Dill and the exceptional player Patrick Anderson against the ASV Bonn.
The highlight of the IPD will be the Long Jump competition between Wojtek Czyz (GER), Heinrich Popow (GER), Marlon Shirley (USA), Urs Kolly (SUI) and Stefano Lippi (ITA) - almost all medal winners from Class T42 (above-knee amputations) and T44 (below-knee amputations) will be in Bonn. This competition will definitely be exciting, since, along with the IPC Athletics European Championships in Finland, this will be the only time in 2005 that these athletes compete against each other.
