Para World Championships on 9Now – 9Now will begin the road to the Paralympics when the Para World Athletics Championships stream live and free from July 8 to 17.
The best para athletes in the world will compete in France, with more than half the spots on our national team for the 2024 Paralympics up for grabs.
Australia will field a strong team of 39 athletes, including three reigning Paralympic champions – Madison de Rozario, James Turner and Vanessa Low – and seven world champions.
Plus, the next generation of Aussie para athletes, such as Angus Hincksman who at 17 is the youngest on the team, will line up in the middle-distance running events to show what the future holds for the green and gold.
Nine’s Director of Sport, Brent Williams, said:
“The 2023 Para World Championships is a pivotal event for athletes and viewers on the journey to the 2024 Paralympics in Paris.
“Across 10 days, 9Now will provide unprecedented coverage of Australia’s best taking it to the world, available to stream anywhere, anytime.”
Paralympics Australia Chief Executive Catherine Clark said:
“This is an exciting milestone for our partnership with Nine which aims to bring Paralympic sport to more Australians than ever before.
“We are so thrilled that Australian audiences, particularly fans of athletics and Para-sport generally, will be able to follow the progress of our talented Australian Para athletics team across Nine’s platforms, the new home of the Paralympics.”
Two-time Australian Paralympian and reigning world champion in 100m and 400m T36 Para-athletics, James Turner, said:
“It’s really important for viewers to have this access to the World Para Athletics Championships so they can learn more about the sport and our team to build excitement for the Paris Paralympic Games next year.
“Having the World Championships on 9Now is going to be fantastic for giving us momentum towards next year. It’s also hopefully going to increase the interest in Para-athletics, and I think it can do wonders for our sport.”
