It's exactly 500 days until the Paralympic Games in London begin.

International Paralympic Committee president Sir Philip Craven says he believes the 2012 event could be the best yet.

Over four thousand participants from around 150 countries will compete in 20 sports at the Games.

Over 750,000 people have registered their interest in attending the Games and Craven, five times a Paralympian himself in wheelchair basketball and swimming, anticipates a stunning showpiece.
