2008 Summer Paralympic Games

Beijing once again hosted athletes from around the world at the beginning of September. Over 4,200 athletes - from six different disability groups - from 148 countries took part in the 2008 Summer Paralympic Games. Not only are the sports divided into events, but the events are divided into different disability categories, to even out the playing field as much as possible.
