About 2008 Paralympic Games
The 2008 Summer Paralympic Games, the thirteenth Paralympics, took place in Beijing, China from September 6 to 17, 2008. As with the 2008 Summer Olympics, equestrian events were held in Hong Kong and sailing events in Qingdao.
3,951 athletes from 146 countries took part. This was the largest ever number of nations at the Paralympics (ten more than in Athens), and five countries competed for the first time. China fielded more athletes than any other country. The slogan for the 2008 Paralympics was the same as the 2008 Summer Olympics, “One World, One Dream”. China dominated the medal count finishing with 89 gold medals and 211 total medals, more than double the next-ranked NPC in both cases.
339 Paralympic records and 279 world records were broken.
International Paralympic Committee (IPC) President Philip Craven declared the Games “the greatest Paralympic Games ever.”
