A very sincere wish from the Chinese over at Beijing National Stadium Paralympic Games closing ceremony for people living with disabilities: ‘Strive to be stronger and harvest happiness.
However, all we saw from the past days of competitions was strong will and determination. We did not see the disabilities coming from these athletes.

China stood on the very top of the Paralympic Games with 89 Gold, 70 Silver and 52 Bronze Medals and coming right at the second place is Great Britain with 42 Gold, 29 Silver and 31 Bronze Medals.
