Organizers have confirmed that the 2012 Paralympics that Jessica Lewis has qualified for will be the biggest ever.
Yesterday at 11:25am several local media outlets received information that Lewis had qualified for the 2012 Paralympics and was returning home on the American Airlines flight out of Miami at 8:10, only three media outlets showed up to welcome Lewis home, one can only guess that the other media that got the invite was extremely busy and could not make it, but they will attempt to make it up tomorrow.
With 100 days to go, the International Paralympic Committee says athletes from 165 countries will compete - 19 more than in Beijing four years ago.
The number of competitors will also increase, to around 4,200.
"It is pleasing that Great Britain, the spiritual birthplace of the Paralympic Movement, will get to host the biggest ever Paralympics," said IPC president Sir Philip Craven.
The opening ceremony for the Games will take place on Wednesday, 29 August with Coldplay confirmed as the star act for the closing ceremony on Sunday, 9 September.
More than one million tickets for the Games went back on sale. The London Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Locog) sold the same number during last year's opening phase of sales.
"It is a massive move for the Paralympic Movement that so many tickets have been sold so far out," 11-time Paralympic gold medalist Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson told BBC Sport.
"I think it has fed off the excitement of the Olympics where a massive number of people applied for tickets, but there is also a genuine passion for Paralympic sport.
