Having trouble with a Tokyo Olympics hangover? Don’t fret as non-stop sporting action is coming your way again with the start of the Tokyo Paralympics. Like the Olympics, the Paralympics will be a two-week spectacle with the games held from August 24 through September 5 and media giant NBCUniversal handling the broadcast in the United States.

They have allotted 1,200 hours of programming for this year’s Paralympic Games, 200 of which will be shown on television with the coverage spread across NBCNBCSN, and the Olympic Channel.

NBCSN will provide daily coverage of the Tokyo Paralympics, with the broadcast schedule running from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. ET. NBCSN will also present live coverage of both the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Tokyo Paralympics. The opening ceremony took place on Tuesday, August 24, while the closing ceremony will happen on Sunday, September 5.

As a sign of modern times, the majority of the coverage for this year’s Paralympics can only be accessed via live stream. More than 1,000 hours of coverage will be available to viewers across PeacockNBCOlympics.com, and the NBC sports app.

The latter two mentioned will live stream not only all the television coverage of NBCSNNBC, and the Olympic Channel but also exclusive coverage of various sports events in the Tokyo Paralympics, including Wheelchair Basketball, Wheelchair Rugby, Wheelchair Tennis, Swimming, Table Tennis, Track & Field, Triathlon, Goalball, Judo, Marathon, Rowing, Shooting, Sitting Volleyball, Soccer 5-a-side, Archery, Badminton, Boccia, Canoe, Cycling, and Equestrian.

It only fits that there’s extensive coverage of the Tokyo Paralympics in the United States as American Paralympians have long been the dominant force in these Games. The Americans have won a whopping 847 gold medals, 778 silver medals, and 742 bronze medals since they started participating in the Paralympic Games in 1960.

They have been present for all 15 of the Summer Paralympics and each of the 12 Paralympic Games. When taking into account only the Summer Paralympics, the United States remains a cut above the rest, with 772 golds, 700 silvers, and 703 bronzes for a total of 2,175 medals.

Team GB is Team USA’s closest competitor, with a total of 1,789 medals won, including 626 golds, 584 silvers, and 579 bronzes.
