Difference Between Olympic Games and Paralympic Games

The Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games have the same venue.

The difference between the Olympic and Paralympic Games is the athletes competing. The Paralympic Games are designed for those sports professionals who suffer from severe disabilities and have not traditionally been represented in Olympic competitions.

Both competitions are significant, and the Olympic and Paralympic committees work hard for their athletes’ equality, so the cities that host the Olympic Games must also host the Paralympics. Similar media coverage must also be guaranteed for both competitions.
