Information on Paralympic Games for Disabled
Last Updated: 2010-11-01 The Paralympic Games are a multi-sport event for athletes with physical, mental and sensorial disabilities. This includes mobility disabilities, amputees, visual disabilities and those with cerebral palsy. The Paralympic Games are held every four years, following the Olympic Games, and are governed by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) -  (The Paralympic Games are sometimes confused with the Special Olympics, which are only for people with intellectual disabilities.) When did the Paralympic Games First start? The Paralympics first started in 1948 when Ludwig Guttmann organized a sports competition which involved world war 2 veterans that had spinal injuries. Afterwards a similar event was organized in Toronto, Canada where different disability groups were added and the idea of merging together and taking part in athletic sports was a success. The name derives from the Greek "para" ("beside" or "alongside") and thus refers to a competition held in parallel with the Olympic Games. No relation with paralysis or paraplegia is intended, however, the word Paralympic was originally a portmanteau combining 'paraplegic' and 'Olympic'. The number of athletes participating in Summer Paralympic Games have increased from 400 athletes from 23 countries in Rome in 1960 to 3806 athletes from 136 countries in Athens in 2004.

    History The concept of the paralympics originated at the Stroke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, England to honor veterans who suffered from spinal injuries from World War II. The inspiration behind the ideas came from Ludwig Guttman, a Jewish neurologist and refugee from Nazi Germany. The first Paralympic game took place in 1960 in Rome, Italy. The games grew by the winter games in 1976 and by the summer games of 1992 in Barcelona, Spain there were 82 competing nations and about 3,500 athletes completing. The Sport Paralympics is an athletic sporting event for the physically disabled including amputees, the blind and persons suffering from cerebral palsy. Some of the summer events the disabled compete in include track, archery, basketball, boccie ball, bowling, cycling, equestrian events, fencing, goal ball, judo, soccer, shooting, swimming, table tennis, tennis, volleyball and weightlifting. Some of the winter events the disabled compete in include skiing, ice-sledge hockey, ice-sled, and biathlon. Many of these sports are the ones we chose to explore on this web site!

    Olympic implications
    If we take this inclusionary ideal further, we come upon an interesting question. If "it's the taking part that counts", do we need the Paralympics? The Paralympic Games are equivalent to the Olympics, but restricted to athletes with physical disabilities. They include traditional athletic events as well as categories like wheelchair racing and wheelchair basketball. The Paralympics seem a perfectly reasonable idea. They allow disabled athletes to compete in events better suited to their needs. They can highlight the bravery of some athletes who have overcome crippling injury or disease and gone on to train to a high standard.

    World Cup Bronze for Kearney
    World Cup Bronze for Ireland’s Lisa Kearney
    On Saturday (Oct 2), Lisa Kearney produced the finest performance of her fledgling career to win her third World Cup medal in twelve months. In the 2010 GB Judo World Cup, the -48kg category was particularly strong.  28 athletes from 21 countries including World, European, Asian and Pan American medalists all competed for valuable Olympic qualifying points.
    After a first round bye, Kearney had a tough route to the semi finals.  She enjoyed a convincing win against Marlene Robert (France) and a thrilling ‘Golden Score’ victory over former Asian Champion Jun Xiao of China.  Lisa’s one defeat was in the semi final against the eventual winner and ‘Player of the Tournament’ Charlene Van Snick (Belgium).  This meant that Kearney would have to face 2009 World Silver medalist Oiano Blanco in the
    Bronze medal match.  The players had met once before in the Tunis Grand Prix in May, where the Spaniard made light work of the 20-year-old Irish girl, 8 years her junior.  However a string of impressive performances over the summer suggested that Kearney would be a more formidable opponent in this Olympic qualifier.  The contest lasted only 50 seconds before Kearney unleashed a spectacular combination that resulted in an ‘Ippon’ score and the coveted World Cup medal.

    THE PARALYMPICS The Paralympics Games are the equivalent to the Olympics for the world's top athletes with a disability. The intent of the Paralympics is to concentrate on the athlete's achievements rather than the disability. Athletes at the Paralympics include paraplegics, tetraplegics, amputees, blind and cerebal palsied individuals, "les autres", and those with an intellectual disability. The Games are held every four years, just after the Olympic Games and at the same venues. MY EXPERIENCE AT THE GAMES For most of my life I have dreamed of someday competing against the best in the world. The 2000 Paralympics in Sydney gave me that opportunity. The experience proved to be far better than I had dreamed. When the time came to leave Sydney, I was sad to go. Sydney did such a wonderful job organizing and preparing for the Games. From conversations with other athletes that had been to previous Paralympics, the general feeling was that Sydney did the best job to date of hosting the Paralympics.
    I did far better than I had expected in my events. I won the 200, 400, 800, 1500, and placed second in the 100. I set four Paralympic records and had one personal best.

    58. Paralympics - Introduktion Til Boccia
    Om boccia.
    Sidst rettet: 19. August 1996, 00:32 Rapport fra Atlanta - Paralympics
    - af DilleSport 18. august 1996
    Om boccia
    Der er en stor usikkerhed med hensyn til at fastsl, hvor boccia egentli stammer fra! Nogle mener, at romerne blev inspireret af de gamle grkere, som kastede en bold ind i en cirkel - lidt i stil med et keglespil. Andre mener, at det kommer fra et italiensk banespil, og atter andre mener, at spillet er en form for det franske spil petanque. Egentlig er det jo ganske ligegyldigt, hvorfra spillet stammer. Det er i hvert fald en kendsgerning, at mennesket altid har syntes det er sjovt at skyde til mls. Hvem har f.eks. ikke prvet 'bjrneskydning' eller 'det muntre kkken' i Tivoli?
    Om selve spillet
    Boccia kan spilles af alle - raske som handicappede. Her ved Parralympics, er det kun spastikere der spiller boccia. Der spilles i Emory University. Mlet med boccia er, at f sine bolde til at komme s nr mlkuglen som muligt. Spillet starter med, at en spiller kaster mlkuglen - The Jack - ind p banen. Herefter glder det om, at komme s tt p the jack som muligt. Man spiller med lderbolde, der vejer ca. 280 gram.
