It kicks off with a men’s marathon victory celebration at 9:00pm AEST, followed by a women’s marathon victory celebration at 9:10pm.
While the theme of the opening ceremony was ‘United by Passion’, the closing will be based on ‘The Worlds We Share’. The organizers promise to leave us “a material to think about diversity and inclusion as we advance through the Paralympics”.
In a preview of the ceremony, they say, “We hope this celebration will be a moment for each of us to reflect on what the future holds.”
The comprehensive program of the Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games consists of four acts, which are the opening and closing of each session. As such, the Olympic Final will be designed not only to celebrate the efforts of the athletes in the first 17 days of the Games, but also to “transmit the excitement and excitement of the Paralympic Games”.
