2022 Winter Paralympics

-

The tradition says that the Olympics are followed by the Paralympics. Therefore, on Friday (4th March), the Beijing 2022 Winter Paralympics had the opening ceremony. Until 13th of March, we will be able to see athletes with different disabilities compete on the biggest stage in the world for glory and honor. 

In the Paralympics, athletes compete with a range of physical disabilities (impaired muscle power; impaired passive range of movement; limb deficiency; short stature; vision impairment and intellectual impairment). The Paralympics started with a small gathering of British World War II veterans in 1948. 

51 countries will compete in the Paralympics. Azerbaijan, Israel and Puerto Rico will participate for the first time. Russian and Belarussian athletes will not be allowed to participate. Denmark will participate with one athlete, Adam Nybo who qualified to compete in alpine skiing.
