Officials with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) Wednesday praised the excellent organization of the Beijing Paralympics.

The Chinese government attached no less importance to the Paralympics than the Aug. 8-24 Olympics, said SASCOC second vice-president Mark Alexander, who came to Beijing for the Olympics.

China fulfilled the pledges for two equally brilliant Olympic Games, Alexander said.

People with physical disabilities have always been one of the priorities of the Chinese government and the importance it attached to the Paralympics is respectable, said SASCOC member Dave van der Merwe.

The organization of the Games was just perfect and the excellent performance and one after another new record also spelled out the success of the Games, said Merwe.
