Paralympians[change | change source]
Paralympians have many different kinds of disabilities, so there are several categories in which they compete. The disabilities are in six broad categories: amputee, cerebral palsy, intellectual disability, wheelchair, visually impaired, and Les Autres (This means "the others" in French.) These categories are further broken down which vary from sport to sport.
