    11/10/2003 18:39:57

    Olympics competition venues in Athens are user-friendly for people with disabilities and mobility difficulties, the physiotherapy manager for the Sydney Paralympics, Mark Brown, said on Saturday.

    Addressing a world Olympic congress on sports sciences in Athens, Brown called for improvements to be made in the Greek capital, especially in public transport.

    ?Yesterday I visited all the Olympic venues and I would say that there will be extremely good accessibility for people with mobility difficulties,'' he told conference delegates.

    ''There are wide ramps and open spaces, and I was pleased to see that the organisers are taking the issue of mobility very seriously. People with mobility difficulties have also told me that accessibility on the new metro is very good," Brown said.

    He added that new buses being purchased before the 2004 games must have special mechanisms installed to ease boarding the vehicles.

    More than a thousand experts scientists from Greece and abroad took part in the congress, which ended on Saturday.
