The 7th Chinese National Games for the Disabled concluded on Sunday in Kunming city of southwestern China’s Yunnan province. With 815 gold medals in the Games this year, Chinese athletes broke 91 world records in track and field, swimming and weightlifting. Over 4,000 athletes from 31 provinces and municipalities as well as Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions participated in the event. The National Games for the Disabled are held once every four years. The next will be held in Hangzhou city of Zhejiang province in 2011. This year’s games are considered an important exercise for the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games, as China will select athletes through this event for the Paralympics. There are over 82 million disabled people in China.
