The 8thParalympic Games

  The 1988 Paralympics marked the first time in 24 years the Paralympics took place in the same venue as the Olympics. The Seoul Paralympic Organising Committee (SPOC) had only a tangential relationship with the Seoul Olympic Organising Committee (SLOC), though it was substantial enough to recruit and train many of the sport and technical officials for the Paralympic Games too.
