There have been more than three million requests for Tokyo 2020 Paralympics tickets via the first lottery phase, three times the demand seen a year out from the London 2012 event which went on to post record sales, Paralympics chief Andrew Parsons has said.London is seen as the benchmark for the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) in terms of interest in the Games with a record total of 2.7 million tickets sold.About 600,000 tickets were allocated during the first lottery. In Tokyo 2020's bid for the Games, organisers said there would only be 2.3 million tickets for the Paralympics but organisers are hopeful more tickets will be made available.
