About Para athletes

 New Zealand Para-Cycling

These days, the difference between an elite Paralympic Athlete and an Olympic Athlete is actually very small. Both train and compete with the same level of dedication, however a Para-Athlete has a disability or impairment that makes them eligible to compete in Para-Sport. Para-Sport is an adapted form of able bodied sport with different equipment or amended rules to accommodate for the physical differences of these athletes. Some Para-Sports are unique and there is no able bodied equivalent. The Paralympic Games takes place every four years and is now one of the hardest and most competitive multi-sport competitions in the world. The Para-Athletes that take part are amongst the fittest, strongest and quickest athletes in the world – far more so than you or I!
