Floorball suffers from the same problem to some extent, but it is arguably much closer to becoming an Olympic sport due to the extreme growth it is experiencing.
That is not a possibility due to logistical reasons. It just wouldn't be possible to host all those events at the same venues and building additional venues is not financially viable.
Would it be possible if they extended the game by a week? I'm pretty sure most of the venues aren't used every day
. Regardless, I think it would bring more attention to the Paralympic events and put it on a similar level, and in 20 or 30 years it could be considered to be on the same level.
