  • The Paralympics are part of the Olympics so that people who are disabled still have a chance to become great at a sport.
  • If somebody loved sports and then they got injured for the rest of their life, then they still have the opportunity to play sports.

How
  • There is five different sports in the Paralympics; wheelchair curling, alpine skiing, biathlon, ice sledge hockey and cross country skiing.
  • Wheelchair curling is exactly like regular curling except the people are in wheelchairs. You can either slide a rock or pushed by a stick. You try to hit on to the target.
