2018 Winter Paralympics

The 2018 Winter Paralympic officially known as the XII Paralympic Winter Games, and commonly known as the 2018 PyeongChang Paralympics, will be an international winter multi-sport event for athletes with disabilities that is scheduled to be held in Pyeongchang County, Gangwon Province, South Korea, from 9 to 18 March 2018, as governed by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC). They will be the first Winter Paralympics held in South Korea.

This year’s competition is the biggest winter Paralympics to date, with more athletes and countries participating than ever before.
