It’s more than sport. For Australians, it’s an integral part of their identity and national being. Sport creates moments that are unforgettable, authentic and unpredictable. It creates a level of passion and engagement that is hard to find elsewhere, bringing communities together.

For marketers, sport is a powerful way to connect with people. It puts brands right at the forefront of the big moments that live in our minds forever. This creates the perfect opportunity to resonate on a deeper level with consumers.

It’s one of the biggest years of sport on Seven with plenty more to come.

Paralympic Winter Games

More than 15% of the world’s population live with a disability and we celebrate their athletic achievement with the 13th Paralympic Winter Games edition in Beijing.

The first Paralympic Winter Games were held in 1976, where the total number of athletes was less than 200 representing 16 countries. Today, more than 700 are in Beijing for the 13th edition of the Games, including a nine-strong Australian team comprising seven athletes and two sight guides.
