The New Zealand Paralympic Games team features 26 athletes including 16 debutants competing for Gold against the world’s best.

Paralympics New Zealand Secretary General and Chief Executive, Fiona Allan is delighted that New Zealanders can witness the inspiring performances of the amazing kiwi athletes competing at the Paralympic Games. As the Olympic Games draw to a close, she encourages the nation to get behind the New Zealand Paralympians.
