With less than one year to go until the Rio 2016 Paralympics, International Paralympic Committee President Sir Philip Craven says his experience in Rio has been fine, but there is still a lot of work to do.

Craven says it will be very exciting to work with old friends from Beijing where last Paralympics Games was held seven years ago.
 
In July, Beijing won the bid for 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
 
International Paralympic Committee President Sir Philip Craven says he is very pleased to see the legacy of the Games has been well kept in China for driving social change and inclusion.

"I was very pleased to see what happens in China in the run up to 2008. I was also very pleased that the IPC accessibility guide has now been translated, only recently, into Chinese. It's a fundamental document with regard to accessibility for all citizens in China". 
 
He stressed again that constancy of social accessibility is needed in preparation for the Paralympics.
