Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay was to investigate why the media coverage of the Paralympics has increased. In order to study the presumed difference in the media, the Paralympics of 2008 and the Olympic Games of 2006 were analyzed. We did a quantitative and a qualitative study were we measured the lenght of articles covering paraolympic athletes as well as non-handicaped athletes in two local newspapers in Norrbotten in addition we interviewed sport journalists from Norrbottens-Kuriren to get their side of the story. The result showed that the Olympic Games-participant from Norrbotten had more coverage than the three Paralympic-participants all together. However the study also showed that the media coverage of the Paralypoics has increased but there are still more to be done.
