PyeongChang 2018 Winter Paralympics

New Zealand has a very long and proud history of competing at the Paralympic Games and other key international pinnacle events. Nearly 50 years ago, we sent a team of 16 Paralympians to the 1968 Summer Paralympic Games in Tel Aviv, Israel. Over 35 years ago, a team of four kiwis competed in the 1980 Paralympic Winter Games in Geilo, Norway. And we have not missed a single Paralympic Games since! A total of 209 Paralympians have represented New Zealand to date.

The PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games took place between 9 - 18 March 2018. The New Zealand Paralympic Team collectively won 3 medals, 1 gold and 2 bronze. The Team included three exceptional Paralympians competing across two Para sports; Para alpine skiing and Para snowboarding

The Games featured 670 Para athletes from 49 delegations.  Para athletes competed in 80 medal events across six Para sports: Para alpine skiing, Para biathlon, Para cross-country skiing, Para ice sledge hockey, Para snowboard and Para wheelchair curling.

Para alpine skiing events took place at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre, which will also staged Para snowboard events. The Aplensia Biathlon Centre staged Para biathlon and Para cross-country events. The Coastal Cluster hosted the ice events. Para ice sledge hockey took place at the Gangneung Hockey Centre and the Gangneung Curling Centre was staged Para wheelchair curling.
