THE LONDON 2012 Olympic Games came to an end last night with a spectacular and surreal closing ceremony.

The event marked the end of what is being hailed as one of the most successful Games in modern history – and it’s not over yet. Around 4,200 athletes from 150 countries around the world will be competing in the Paralympics, with the opening ceremony taking place on 29 August.

More than 2.1 million tickets out of a total of 2.5 million have already been sold for the games, and organisers have said they are hopeful it could be the first time the Paralympic Games sells out in its 52-year history.

So today we’re asking: Given the success of the Olympics, are you now more likely to watch the Paralympics than you were before the Games began?


Poll Results:

No (1058)
