The Rio 2016 Olympic Games have released ticket prices for the Paralympic sporting events, and the swimming portion ranks near the top in price ranges.
That’s obviously bad news for fans hoping to watch the swimming portion of the Paralympics, but good news for the sport in general, which is apparently attracting enough of an audience to rate so highly in ticket prices.
The top-tier tickets for the finals sessions will go for as much as 90 Brazilian Real (BRL), which roughly converts to $28.46 in American dollars.
You can find finals tickets on the Rio 2016 ticket pricing guide for as low as 50 BRL, or $15.81 a session. Prelims tickets run from 40 BRL ($12.65) per session to 60 BRL ($18.97) per session.
The only sports with higher price ranges than that appear to be athletics, 5-a-side football and wheelchair basketball, which blows away all other sports with sessions as expensive as 130 BRL, or $41.11 in US Dollars.
