A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Paralympics Collection - A German immigrant to England, Ludwig Guttmann, worked with individuals that had suffered spinal cord injuries and saw firsthand that exercise, and especially sports competition, were very helpful for disabled people to regain lives full of meaning and purpose, and most importantly, a healthy self image. In 1948, with Stoke Mandeville Hospital, he organized in London what was called then "International Wheelchair Games" and timed it to coincide with the Olympic Games. Participants from the Netherlands joined in the 1952 version of the games which was then called the "International Paralympics." By the 1960 Paralympics in Rome, shortly after the Olympic Games, more than 400 athletes were in the games representing 23 countries. The 1996 Paralympics saw Malaysia sending competitors marking the 100th country. Paralympics coinciding with the Olympic Games were held in Tokyo 1964, Seoul 1988, Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996, and Sydney 2000. It is surprising to many that the Paralympics are the now the second largest international sporting event, second only to the Olympics. Although the games provide competition that is tailored to accommodate athletes that are disabled in some way, the intensity, determination, and skill of the partici-pants is extraordinary. Participants and spectators are both beneficiaries of the pride and accomplishments displayed during the games. Paralympics.
