 Paralympic Games and Athletes

The Paralympic Games take place once every four years (with a Winter Games two years after each summer edition of the Games) in the same city and year as the Olympic Games. The Paralympic Games is an elite multi-sport event for disabled athletes with a disability and are a direct “parallel” to the Olympic Games – hence the name.

Find information, games news and teams details with results along with individual UK Paralympic stars and links to their official sites and social media pages for you to discover more about them and their amazing achievements in Paralympic games.
