“We are thrilled that Canadians will get to live such inspiring moments with our Paralympic athletes through unprecedented coverage, including primetime broadcasts, thanks to our media consortium”
Following the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, Canadians were left with a sport coverage void. This is no longer the case for Para sport as we introduced the Paralympic Super Series Rewind. These segments highlighted many of Canada’s historical moments at the Paralympics through the millennial decade of summer sport (2000 – 2008) – moments that many had never seen before!
The series, hosted by Benoit Huot, launched on August 24, 2020 the official one-year to the Tokyo Games. As we celebrate what would have been the original timeframe of the Paralympics, we aired one show in both official languages per day for 10 days.
