Chef de Mission Chantal Petitclerc, Assistant Chef de Mission Norm O’Reilly and CPC staff have joined more than 200 international delegates in Rio this week for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games Chef de Mission seminar.

The gathering enables heads of delegations to take part in a number of venue tours and receive updates and valuable information on various areas from Rio 2016 and IPC representatives.

“It’s been great to see the progress and details, not only on the competition sites’ buildings, but also on the quality of services that will be provided,” said Petitclerc.

“We will leave the Chef de Mission seminar confident that our athletes will excel in this high-performance environment. And let me tell you, the Athletes’ Village is spectacular. Our athletes will love it!”
