The 14th Paralympics are being held between August 29th to September 9th. London, the host city of 2012 Summer Olympic Games, is opening her arms to welcome nearly 4,000 Paralympics athletics from 147 countries. 

The opening ceremony of Paralympics was started at 20:30 British Summer Time on 29th August. This show, named Enlightenment, started with a speech of the great British physicist, Stephen Hawking. Then a disabled actress portrayed Miranda from Shakespeare's The Tempest and began to explore her way of life. Nearly three hours later, all the athletics arrived into the London Bowl Stadium. The Queen made a speech and announced the opening of the Games. The last and most important thing was the ceremony of lighting the Paralympics Cauldron. An 84-year old lady named Margaret Maughan, the first Paralympics gold medalist for Great Britain, finally lit the Paralympics Cauldron. As we know from the pictures, the Paralympics Cauldron shares the same design with the Summer Olympic Games.

People may pay less attention to the Paralympics than Olympic Games, but there are still some highlights for us to concert. One of them is Oscar Pistorius, a disabled runner from South Africa who owns cool alias as "Blade runner" or "The fastest man on no legs". Pistorius participated Olympics Games and shocked the whole world last month. Now he's ready for the games in Paralympics.

Here I collected some wallpapers from the Internet, most of them are themes of Paralympics opening ceremony while the others are about Oscar Pistorius. These wallpapers are also available for PowerPoint backgrounds. Anyway, enjoy watching the Paralympics!
