Sunday night will see the opening spectacular ceremony of the Guangzhou Para games. The final rehearsal has taken place and things are looking good.

The opening ceremony will be held in the Guangdong Olympic Sport Center this evening. More than 200 disabled performers took part in the rehearsal. Unlike the Asian Games staged two weeks ago, the ceremony does not focus on high tech performances, rather, emotion. "Love" and "self-improvement" are the theme of the night. The final minutes of the ceremony will see the flame being lit, but the details of how and what will take place are being kept a firmly guarded secret.

The week long Para Games will see some 2500 athletes compete in 19 sports and events.
