Google Paralympics

Today the Paralympics has started and Google has a special logo, aka Doodle for the start of the 2016 Paralympics. The logo is an animated GIF broken up into many frames.

I embedded the animated GIF above. Google described the Doodle as something that "celebrates the opening of the 2016 Summer Paralympics and highlights the incredible feats of athleticism the participants will demonstrate in Rio. They’ll go for gold during a year of firsts: Rio, the first Latin American city to host the Paralympics, will debut canoeing and paratriathlon among the more than 500 existing events."

Google also wrote:

What started as a small gathering of British WWII veterans in 1948 has bloomed into the world’s largest sporting event for athletes with physical disabilities, drawing 4,500 athletes from 176 countries worldwide.

This Doodle shows the following sports:

  • Running
  • Volleyball
  • Soccer
  • Swimming
  • Weight lifting
  • Cycling
