The 16th Paralympic Games will be live on the Seven Network, with viewers set to enjoy unprecedented coverage of one of elite sport’s greatest events.
Starting with the Opening Ceremony on 24 August, Seven’s coverage will take fans inside the Paralympic Games like never before across 13 action-packed days.
From morning to midnight every day on Seven and 7plus, fans will be able to choose from an unprecedented offering of up to 16 live streams – all live, free and in HD.
Seven’s Tokyo 2020 coverage will be led by a world-class commentary team headlined by the biggest and best group of Paralympians ever assembled for an Australian broadcast.
Australian Paralympic legends Kurt Fearnley and Annabelle Williams will anchor Seven’s coverage, alongside Johanna Griggs, Matt White and Emma Vosti.
Our commentary line-up is headlined by Aussie Paralympic icon Priya Cooper, a nine-time swimming Gold medallist, and three-time athletics Gold winner Tim Matthews, who will bring rare insight to the competition at the pool and track respectively in Tokyo.
Joining them are Jessica Gallagher, the first Australian to win medals at both the Paralympic Games and Winter Paralympic Games, wheelchair basketball Gold medallist Nick Morris and dual wheelchair rugby silver medallist Bryce Alman.
Fans will also enjoy unparalleled inner-sanctum access to the Australian competitors in Tokyo, with Australian team co-captain and defending gold medallist Ryley Batt (wheelchair rugby) and Rio 2016 gold medallist Curtis McGrath (para-canoeing) both set to join Seven’s commentary team once they have finished competing.
Seven’s team of reporters on the ground in Tokyo will include another Australian Paralympic great Katrina Webb, who won three gold medals in athletics across three Paralympic Games. Webb will be joined by 7NEWS reporters Matthew Carmichael, Chris Stubbs, Blake Johnson and Joel Dry, who will ensure audiences are kept up to date with all the latest news, colour and atmosphere of the Games.
Some of Australia’s pre-eminent callers will also be part of the live and free coverage, with Matt Hill, David Culbert, Jason Bennett and Darren Boyd all set to bring the Tokyo 2020 competition to life as only they can.
