To meet our athletes is incredible,
To hear their stories is unforgettable,
And to watch them compete will change you forever.

Paralympic athletes train hard, compete with intensity and push the boundaries of human achievement. Their disability doesn’t make them different. They are athletes first – they do it for the athletic achievement and competition. They are driven by their pursuit of excellence.
