Lyon, France will host the 2013 IPC Athletics World Championships between 19-28 July.
Around 1,300 athletes from 90 countries are expected to attend the event which will be the first major gathering of international track and field stars following the hugely successful London 2012 Paralympic Games.
Lyon’s Stadium of Parilly, which is located in 178 hectares of spectacular parkland to the south east of the city, will host the Championships. Ahead of the event organizers plan to build temporary stands to increase capacity for spectators at the venue and are looking at hosting the marathon on a 7km loop road within the surroundings of Parc Parilly.
