Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games start in one week
Following an adrenaline-charged Olympic Winter Games, our Aussie athletes will hit the slopes once again when the Paralympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 start live, free and in HD* on Seven and 7plus from Friday, 4 March.
Beginning with the official Paralympic Winter Games Opening Ceremony from 11.00pm AEDT, Johanna Griggs will host Seven’s Paralympic Winter coverage, while 7NEWS’ Matt Carmichael will take Australians into the heart of all the action live from Beijing. Four-time Paralympian Jessica Gallagher will also join Seven’s coverage of the Games.
In the lead-up to the Games, Seven will kick-start the Paralympic spirit from Saturday, 26 February, with the Winter Paralympics Preview Show and the premiere of All the Way Up – a documentary about Australian Paralympian Sam Tait embarking on a journey to become the first paraplegic to summit and ski down the highest mountain in Australia, Mt Kosciuszko.
The Paralympic Winter Games is among sport’s greatest events and we can’t wait to bring fans all the unmissable action over the next 12 days as Australia competes against the very best in the world.Kurt Burnette, Seven West Media Chief Revenue Officer and Director of Olympics
“We are extremely proud to be the Home of the Paralympics across the screens of Seven and we will once again deliver an exciting, inspiring and unforgettable two weeks of winter action with nine incredible Aussie athletes ready to give it their all for a Paralympic medal.
Seven’s exclusive coverage of the Winter Olympics reached 12.5 million people and attracted new and younger audiences to Seven. This helped secure Seven’s biggest ratings survey year start since 2018 and we look forward to introducing even more viewers to the incredible Paralympic Winter Games.
