The ABC coverage of the Games won an IPC award

After losing the Australian broadcast rights to rival network SBS for the 2004 summer Games, the ABC snared the Torino winter Paralympics and broadcast and broadcast a 30 minutes daily package throughout the Games hosted by Shaun Giles. The ABC’s coverage of the Games won the network an award by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) for the best media coverage of the 2006 winter Games. Here, Giles interviews bronze medallist Toby Kane, while the Australian team’s press officer, Margie McDonald, listens in.
