Spanish Princess Infanta Elena will lead an official delegation to attend the opening ceremony of Beijing Paralympics on Sept. 6, Spanish Paralympic Committee (CPE) said on Sunday.

Elena, who is also the honorary president of the CPE, will attend the ceremony with the Education, Social Policy and Sports Minister Mercedes Cabrera, CPE President Miguel Carballeda, and Mercedes Coghen, a representative from Madrid Olympic Games Biding Committee (MOGBC).

Most MOGBC leaders have been to Beijing for the 2008 Olympics, and have conducted publicity activities in the city for Madrid's bid for the 2016 Olympics. They are to travel back to Beijing with Coghen.

Spain will send a team of 232 people, including 133 athletes, to take part in 15 games of the Beijing Paralympics.
