The Paralympic Games: A bibliography

E-mail Print

The Paralympic Games are the pinnacle event of the International Paralympic Committee and the showcase of elite performance for athletes with disabilities. They are considered a ‘parallel’ movement to the Olympics. The Paralympics are held every four years generally after the Olympic Games, and mostly, in the same host City as the Olympic Games. They include the disability categories of: Amputee; Cerebral palsy; Intellectual disability; Vision impaired; Wheelchair; and Les autres. The Paralympics have grown rapidly since their inception to become part of a global network of sports events. In doing so they have brought an increased visibility and status to people with disabilities by focusing on their abilities.
