The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and partner Allianz have joined together to provide an online training series for young disabled people, with workout videos provided by Paralympic athletes.

It is part of their MoveNow programme that looks to improve young people's lives through sport, a collaborative initiative with Allianz and the International Olympic Committee.

This is one of 24 projects launched by Allianz in the build-up to the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

"There is an increasing gap when it comes to inclusivity and accessibility in sports and beyond," said Eike Bürgel, global head of Olympic and Paralympic programme management at Allianz.

"Through our partnership with the IPC, we will continue to get behind the hopes, challenges and needs of the Para athlete community by creating a pathway of participation for people with disabilities and inspire young people to get active."

Paralympians are to share their sporting journeys to educate future generations on how to be best prepared as a sportsperson, with training plans available for them to download too.

Dutch long jump Paralympic champion Fleur Jong and Irish shot put Paralympian Mary Fitzgerald are taking part in the programme, as is Austrian wheelchair tennis player Nico Langmann.

"I want to show other people with disabilities what is physically possible because anyone in a wheelchair can lead an active lifestyle," Langmann said. 

"I have an incredibly cool, exciting life."

Allianz has been a partner of the IPC since 2006.
