Success of NI team in 2008 inaugural Games at Stoke Mandeville

  On 13th June 2008, amputees met at Stoke Mandeville Stadium in Hants to take part in the inaugural Amputee Games. 12 teams of eight amputees and two healthcare professionals participated in 13 Paralympic sports over two days to win the trophy and experience the benefits of participation in sport.

The Games will give primary amputees an opportunity to experience a wide variety of sports, taught by specialist from the individual sports governing bodies and associations. They will take part in 13 different sports both recreationally and competitively: providing them with a pathway to join the individual disability sporting associations after the games, where they can progress their skills. The four competitive sports, each featured in the Paralympics are swimming, athletics, shooting and archery and the nine non-competitor sports, are badminton, table-tennis, fencing, sitting volleyball, powerlifting, rugby, athletics, cycling and hand-cycling, and tennis.
