TORONTO, Ont. – For those who thought the Olympics wrapped up over two weeks ago – think again.

The opening ceremony for the London 2012 Paralympic Games is set for Wednesday, and Canada’s team is ready to take on the world.

With 145 athletes in London, Canada has a very strong team which will compete for medals in 15 sports.

Some of the competitions are similar to the able-bodied games, such as swimming athletics and judo, but other sports such as wheelchair rugby, tennis, fencing and basketball can have incredible results.

“It never gets old. If anything I think it gets more exciting,” said Tracey Ferguson, who plans on Canada’s wheelchair hoops team.

Brock Richardson is Canada’s star in boccia, which compares to curling, but uses balls instead.

“I have full confidence in Canada and will do well,” he said.

Canada finished 7th in the last summer Paralympic Games in Beijing with 50 medals – 19 of them gold. Canadian Olympic officials predict a top 8 finish this year.
