With only 15 days to go we are counting down to cheer on Australia’s Paralympic athletes in Rio.

This year we’ll see athletes from 176 countries competing in 23 sports across 538 events at 21 venues.

Our Aussie team has an impressive 169 athletes from 15 sports competing, trying to top their London record of fifth on the gold medal tally with 32 gold, 23 silver and 30 bronze medals.

Every Australian Counts asked Channel 7 about their coverage of the Paralympics and they confirmed, just as for their Olympic coverage, they will be closed captioning all events. 

Bring it on!
